1 I now have found for hope of heaven
An anchor ground that firm will hold;
One--through the cross of Jesus given,
By God predestined from of old;
A ground that shall enduring stay,
When earth and skies have passed away.
2 ’Tis mercy,--mercy never ending,
Whose measure all our thoughts excels,
The arms of pity wide extending
Of Him whose heart for sinners feels,
And whose compassion warns His foes
To fly from sin and endless woes.
3 Of all beside were I forsaken,
That could my soul or body cheer,--
If every joy of earth were taken,
And not a friend were left me here,--
One joy remains--the brightest, best:
With pardoning love I still am blest.
