1 Jesus comes with all his grace,
comes to save a fallen race,
object of our glorious hope,
Jesus comes to lift us up.
2 Let the living stones cry out,
every child of Abraham shout;
praise we all our lowly King,
give him thanks, rejoice and sing.
3 He has our salvation wrought,
he our captive souls has bought,
he has reconciled to God,
he has washed us in his blood.
4 We are now his lawful right,
walk as children of the light;
we shall soon obtain the grace,
pure in heart, to see his face.
5 We shall gain our calling's prize;
after God we all shall rise,
filled with joy, and love, and peace,
perfected in holiness.
