1 Thus saith the holy One, and true,
To his beloved faithful few;
"Of heaven and hell I hold the keys,
To shut, or open, as I please.

2 "I know thy works, and I approve,
Though small thy strength, sincere thy love;
Go on, my word and name to own,
For none shall rob thee of thy crown.

3 "Before thee see my mercy's door
Stands open wide to shut no more;

For I will be thy strength and stay.

4 "Thou hast my promise, hold it fast,
The trying hour will soon be past;
Rejoice, for lo! I quickly come,
To take thee to my heavenly home.

5 "A pillar there no more to move,
Inscribed with all my names of love;
A monument of mighty grace,
Thou shalt forever have a place."

6 Such is the conqueror's reward,
Prepared and promised by the Lord!
Let him that hath the ear of faith,
Attend to what the Spirit saith.
