Representative Text

1 Soon I’ll cross the "mystic river,"
Soon my labors will be o’er,
Soon my boat shall reach the landing,
Soon my feet shall press the shore.

Refrain:
Help me, help me now, my Savior,
Wandering souls to win for Thee,
Souls to shine in heav’nly mansions,
Throughout all eternity.

2 Will there be one soul to greet me,
Out of all that happy band,
One that I have helped to rescue,
Guided to the shining strand? [Refrain]

3 Will someone then say with rapture,
"It was you who showed the way,
Led me to a gracious Savior,
Sought me when I went astray"? [Refrain]

4 O the bliss beyond expression,
O the joy serene and pure!
Lord for this I’ll gladly labor,
All the heat and toil endure! [Refrain]

5 If I may, for Thine own kingdom,
Win but one dear blood-bought soul,
’Twill be precious compensation,
When I’ve reached, at last, the goal. [Refrain]
