R61. Bless'd be the everlasting God

Bless’d be the everlasting God,
the Father of our Lord;
Be his abounding mercy praised,
his majesty adored.

When from the dead he raised his Son,
and called him to the sky,
He gave our souls a lively hope
that they should never die.

To an inheritance divine
he taught our hearts to rise;
’Tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
unfailing in the skies.

Saints by the pow’r of God are kept
till the salvation come:
We walk by faith as strangers here;
but Christ shall call us home.
