CXLIX. O Happy where such grace is found

1 O Happy where such grace is found,
That works the love of God;
Where souls with charity abound,
To shew itself abroad.

2 This proves the glory of the cause,
For which the Church contends;
Defends the doctrine of the Cross,
On which our hope depends.

3 This hope still bids us to endure,
And patiently to wait:
Till God reveals his love and pow'r
To change our mournful state.

4 Those tribulations and distress,
For Jesus' sake we bear;
They are sure tokens of his grace,
His providence and care.

5 With Christ the Lord shall be reveal'd
With all the Ang'lic Host;
His promises will be fulfill'd,
And none of them be lost.

6 He will reward his suff'ring saints
For all their toil and pain:
Where not a foe or least complaint,
Shall trouble them again.
