1 Here shall no Trouble or Dismay
Reach us, nor Want, nor Sin, nor Shame,
For Christ To-day and Yesterday,
And to Eternity's the same.
2 Here consummate in Joy and Peace,
We hail that wounded, bleeding Heart,
Where, sav'd from Sin, we'll never cease
To praise the Lamb our better Part.
3 Now all Things in one Period turn;
Sin dare no more to show its Head;
No more we want, nor sigh, nor mourn,
On ev'ry Foe we conqu'ring tread.
4 The End is come, God hath appear'd,
Assum'd our Flesh, and Blood, and Bone;
The Body, in his Love, prepar'd,
Is that where Christ and we are one.
5 O Death! where's now thy Sting and Curse?
Where's now thy boasted Pow'r and Might?
We feel no more the dread Remorse,
Nor can thy Terrors us affright.
6 Glory to our incarnate God!
We're sav'd in him, the Work is done;
He leads us, by the Saviour's Blood,
Up to the Glories of his Throne.
