S.M.


1
NOT to ourselves we owe
That we, O God, are Thine;
Jesus, the Lord, our night broke through
And gave us light divine.
2
Our God in boundless love
This blessing freely gave,
And Jesus came from heav'n above,
Our ruined souls to save.
3
No more in dread of wrath,
Thy sovereign love we see;
And, Father, in confiding faith,
We rest our souls on Thee.
4
Our hearts look up to see
The glory Christ is giv'n,
In spirit dwell where we shall be
Withh Him, Thine heirs, in heav'n.
5
With all the rasomed band,
Soon shall we see Him there;
With them and Him in glory stand,
And in His honour share.

P. Gerhardt, fr. German
