Full Text

1. Lord, in love Thou didst receive us,
Ere creation as Thine own.
And that love will never leave us,
But will raise us to Thy throne.
Thou wilt come, and we shall meet Thee;
Then the saints whom Thou wilt raise,
Will with those remaining greet Thee,
Joining in the song of praise.

2. Then shall we, Thine image bearing,
Know Thee, Lord, as we are known;
With our blood-washed robes, declaring
What for us Thy death hath done.
Thus we all our joys expressing,
Shall for ever praise Thy name,
Glory, power, dominion, blessing,
Be to God and to the Lamb.
