CCXXX. Master

1 Jesus, Master, in thine hand
Lead on thy family,
'Till we all possess the land,
The promis'd liberty:
There amidst the holy throng
We all shall see thy blissful face,
Singing one eternal song
To Christ, the God of grace.

2 In thy bleeding heart shall we
All find our blest abode;
Each disowning all for thee,
Thou wounded Lamb of God:
There possessing all we want
In thy rich fulness, holy Lamb,
Hence we all are now content
To bear thy cross and shame.

3 In thy smitten body, we
Are pure for ever more;
Happy to eternity,
We will our Lord adore:
We in Christ, our ark, abide,
O'er each temptation still we soar;
We disdain the swelling tide,
and soon shall reach the shore.

4 Farewell all this world below,
And all that earth calls good,
We rejoice no more in you,
We are redeem'd by blood.
Now redeem'd to God we prove
A safe asylum from our fears;
All the heights, and depths of love,
In Jesus' blood appears.
