ex-change for bliss.
Jesus is our common Lord,
He our loving Saviour is:
By his death to life restored,
Mis'ry we exchange for bliss,—
Bliss to carnal minds unknown :
O 'tis more than tongue can tell!
Only to believers shown,
Glorious and unspeakable.
Christ, our Brother and our Friend,
Shows us his eternal love:
Never shall our triumphs end,
Till we take our seats above.
Let us walk with him in white;
For our bridal day prepare,
For our partnership in light,
For our glorious meeting there!
8s & 7s,
Forsaking all lo follow Christ.
Jesus, I my cross have taken,
All to leave and follow thee;
Naked, poor, despised, forsaken,
Thou, from hence, my all shalt be:
And while thou shalt smile upon me,
God of wisdom, love, and might,
Foes may hate and friends disown me;
Show thy face, and all is bright.
Man may trouble and distress me;
'Twill but drive me to thy breast;
Life with trials hard may press me;
Heaven will bring me sweeter rest;
O, 'tis not in grief to harm me,
While thy love is left to me;
O, 'twere not in joy to charm me,
Were that joy unmixed wdth thee.
