Representative Text

1 Our country is Immanuel’s ground,
We seek that promised soil;

And oft are bathed in tears;
Yet nought but heaven our hopes can raise,
And nought but sin our fears.

3 We tread the path our Master trod;
We bear the cross He bore;
And every thorn that wounds our feet
His temples pierced before.

4 Our powers are oft dissolved away
In ecstasies of love;
And while our bodies wander here
Our souls are fixed above.

Amen.
