1 The day of Christ, the day of God
We humbly hope with joy to see,
Washed in the sanctifying blood
Of an expiring Deity.

2 Who did for us His life resign,
There is no other God but One,
For all the plenitude divine
Resides in the incarnate Son.

3 Spotless, sincere, without offense
O may we to His day remain,
Who trust the blood of God to cleanse
Our souls from every sinful stain.

4 Lord, we believe the promise sure:
The purchased Comforter impart,
Apply Thy blood to make us pure,
To keep us pure in life and heart.

5 Then let us see that day supreme,
When none the Godhead shall deny,
Thy sovereign majesty blaspheme,
Or count Thee less than the Most High.

6 When all who Thee their God believe,
Who here Thy last appearing love
Shall Thy consummate joy receive,
And see Thy glorious face above.
