All safely sealed in heav’n;
They sing of His redeeming blood,
Thro’ which they were forgiv’n;
Thro’ which they were forgiv’n,
Thro’ which they were forgiv’n. [Refrain]
3 “For Jesus’ sake” shall be our theme;
His love, our richest prize;
For His dear name alone we’ll live,
And by His pow’r arise;
And by His pow’r arise,
And by His pow’r arise. [Refrain]
4 “For Jesus’ sake;” O blessed One!
Fulfill our heart’s desire;
We would unto Thy glory live,
And in Thy work expire;
And in Thy work expire,
And in Thy work expire. [Refrain]
