8.8.6.8.8.6.


1
O LORD, how blest - as day by day
We pass along our pilgrim way -
To know that we are Thine!
Thine, through redemption's precious blood,
Which cleanses, which brought us nigh to God
In righteousness divine.
2
Thine, ever Thine - to be with Thee,
For where Thou art Thine own must be;
Love will not be alone;
Love's resting-place together shared
With Thee by those Thou hast declared
Through grace to be Thine own.
3
O Lord, in meed and godly fear
To follow and to serve Thee here
Do Thou our hearts incline;
To be for Thee where Thou hast been,
Until we reach Thee in that scene
Where Thou wilt own us Thine.
4
Lord, may we always own Thy claim,
And, overcoming in Thy Name,
From earthliness be free;
And by the daily manna fed,
Renewed in strength, the path we'd tread
Which leads us up to Thee.

T. Porter
