L.M.


1
O GOD, our hearts are filled with joy,
And praises rich our lips employ,
As we anticipate the hour
When Thou wilt manifest Thy power -
2
When heav'n and earth shall pass away,
Ended for ever death's dark sway;
And Thou wilt then make all things new,
New heav'n and earth bring into view -
3
When Thou shalt wipe away all tears,
Banish all sorrow, pain, and fears:
With rapture then each heart will swell,
When Thou Thyself with men shalt dwell.
4
Thy tabernacle then shall be
The centre blest, and all will see
Thy glory, love without recall,
And Thou, O God, be all in all!

J.W. Parry
