1 Should we not glory in the cause?
Of Christ our Sovereign Lord;
Who will be as he ever was,
Our great and sure reward.

2 The Christian man should never faint,
Tho' he should feel the smart--
It is the Cross that makes the Saint,
And purifies the heart.

3 This was Saint Paul's sincere desire,
For this he humbly pray'd;
O! may the Lord your minds inspire!
With grace as ye may need.

4 The Lord endow you from above!
Give you to understand:
The height and depth of saving love,
And bounties of his hand.

5 Far more than we can think or know,
Or any wise believe;
Will Christ on humble souls bestow,
Who seek in him to live.
