Savior, we now rejoice in hope,
That Thou at last will take us up;
With daily triumph we proclaim,
And bless and magnify Thy name,
And wait Thy greatness to adore
When time and death shall be no more.

Till then with us vouchsafe to stay,
And keep us pure from sin today;
Thy great confirming grace bestow,
And guard us all our days below;
And ever mightily defend,
And save Thy servants to the end.

Still let us, Lord, by Thee be blest,
Who in Thy guardian mercy rest:
Extend Thy mercy’s arms to me,
The weakest soul that trusts in Thee;
And never let me lose Thy love,
Till I, e’en I, am crowned above.
