Bless'd Be the Everlasting God

Bless'd be the everlasting God

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Bless’d be the everlasting God,
the Father of our Lord;
be his abounding mercy prais'd,
his majesty adored.
2 When from the dead he rais'd his Son,
and call'd him to the sky,
he gave our souls a lively hope
that they should never die.

3 To an inheritance divine
he taught our hearts to rise;
’tis uncorrupted, undefil'd,
unfading in the skies.
4 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.
