194. How Blest Are They Who through the Power

1 How blest are they who through the pow'r
Of heaven-kindled faith
Confide in Thee each day and hour,
O Christ of Nazareth!
O Christ of Nazareth!

2 Grant us a firmer, stronger faith
In Thee, O Crucified;
In joy and pain, in life and death,
With Thy redeemed abide.
With Thy redeemed abide.

3 Thy pardon, full, complete, bestow
Upon Thy ransomed own,
That all the Father's love may know,
And trust Thy grace alone.
And trust Thy grace alone.

4 What joy, when faith is changed to sight,
And heaven's gates we see,
To laud Thy Name in mansions bright,
Through all eternity!
Through all eternity!
