Thou mighty to save

Full Text

1 O Jesus, my Lord and Savior,
Who gavest Thy life for me,
No room in my heart for pleasures
That have not their trust in Thee;
Earth has no abiding city,—
Not her is my place of rest,—
I seek for a brighter country,
A home with the pure and blest.

Refrain:
And oh, when my course is finished,
And victor’s palm I wave,
To Thee will I give the glory,
O Thou, who art mighty to save,
To Thee will I give the glory,
O Thou, who art mighty to save.

2 The world like a dream will vanish,
The hope like the years decay,
Its beauties like dewy blossoms
Will wither and pass away;
But Thou wilt abide unchanging,
My sure defense wilt be;
O Jesus my Lord and Savior,
I’m trusting alone in Thee. [Refrain]

3 O what are the toils and labors,
The crosses that now I bear,
Compared with the crown immortal
Laid up for my soul to wear?
‘Twill matter to me but little
What conflicts I have passed,
If, after the strife is ended,
I rest at Thy feet at last. [Refrain]
