1 There are those in glory blest
Who serv’d the Lord on earth,
Who serv’d the Lord on earth,
Many who in Jesus rest,
And know His blessed worth, His blessed worth.

O, ‘twas wond’rous love,
O, ‘twas wond’rous love,
O, ‘twas wond’rous love,
Full and free;
O, ‘twas wond’rous love,
From my Lord above,
O, ‘twas wond’rous love,
That saved me.

2 Who is there that does not long
To know that holy life,
To know that holy life,
Who’d not raise that happy song,
Be free’d from earthly strife, from earthly strife. [Refrain]

3 Gentle Saviour, Thou art kind,
We long to see Thy face,
We long to see Thy face,
Let our hearts to Thee incline,
O give us saving grace, give saving grace. [Refrain]
