10.10.10.10.


1
O LORD, we joy that Thou art glory-crowned,
Who by Thy death to God hast brought us nigh;
In Thee alone is our forgiveness found,
And everlasting praises rise on high.
2
We praise Thee, for Thou didst in death lay down
Thy precious life, and off'ring once for all;
For ever cleansed by blood, our joy and crown
We owe to Thee, and this before Thee fall.
3
We bless Thee, glorious Lord; Thou risen art;
And we, set free from sin and death, rejoice
To know in Thee, in life, our endless part,
As with adoring thoughts our praise we voice.
4
Soon Thou art coming, Lord; we wait for Thee!
Soon all Thine own shall meet Thee in the air,
And we shall dwell with Thee eternally,
All changed, and like to Thee, Thy place to share.

C. Müller, fr. German
