Hymn Selection



O PRAISE the Saviour for His love,
To take one to Hiself above!
These blessèd words our hearts suffice -
"Today - with Me - in paradise."
He knows His sheep, they hear His voice,
Are owned by Him, His sovereign choice.
Then praise Him, God's belovèd Son,
Who has o'er death the vict'ry won!
How better far than earth's rewards!
In life or death we are the Lord's!
Despite aught Satan could contrive,
In Christ shall all be made alive.
And "Jesus wept"! such feeling shown
For one He loved and called His own!
The love of God exceeds our boast,
In Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Yes! God will bring them: every ear
The Lord's assembling shout shall hear.
They'll rise, and we with them shall be
Caught up to dwell, O Lord, with Thee.
In purpose, called, now justified,
Conformed to Thee - thus glorified,
And gathered round Thyself adored,
We'll be for ever with Thee, Lord!

J. Taylor, 3rd.
