L.M.


1
THY death and resurrection, Lord,
(How faith rejoices in the word!)
Have met the charge that on us lay,
And taken all death's sting away.
2
Soon all the saints who through Thee sleep,
Th' appointment in the air will keep,
When, rising from Thy Father's throne,
Thou comest forth to claim Thine own.
3
Thy voice the realm of death shall burst,
The dead in Christ arising first;
And, in a moment, we who live
The Spirit's quick'ning change receive.
4
Together then, the church will be
Complete in one vast company!
Caught up to meet Thee, blessèd Lord,
Where Thou shalt ever be adored.
5
And now in faith and hope and love,
We wait to greet Thee from above;
Each heart sustained in power and grace,
Until we see Thee face to face.
