Obedient unto death endure,
And find Thy richest promise sure.

To fix Thy heavenly kingdom here,
I shall with my Redeemer join,
Partake the victory divine,
And clothed with Thy resistless power
The Conqueror of the world adore.

3 With Thee in full paternal might,
Vested, I shall go forth to fight,
Shall see the nations broke, subdued,
And scattered by Thine iron rod,
Swift as the shivered vessel flies
And share the triumph of the skies.
