Representative Text

1 Each passing moment claiming
The grace and strength we need,
We would be always naming
The name we love to plead.

2 His holy life forth showing
Along our upward way;
His image in us growing
More life-like day by day.

3 Our very faces beaming
Doxologies unsung;
Our ransomed natures seeming
To heavenly music strung.

4 For ever o’er us streaming
The light of Jesu’s love,
In the fair distance gleaming
The pearly gates above.

5 Then in the kingdom bending
Before our Saviour’s feet,
Life’s dark enigmas ending
In hallelujahs sweet.

6 No trembling notes of sadness;
The rest of faith becomes
A rest in love and gladness—
Eternal glory won.
