We’ll praise thee glorious Lord,
Who died to set us free;
No earthly songs can joy afford
Like heavenly melody.
Love that no suffering stayed
We’ll praise -true love divine;
Love that for us atonement made;
Love that has made us thine.
Love in the lonely life
Of sorrow here below
Thy word of grace, with mercy rife,
Make grateful praises flow!
Love that on death’s dark vale
Its sweetest odors spread,
Where sin o’er all seemed to prevail
Redemption glory shed.
And now we see thee risen
Who once for us hast died,
Seated above the highest heaven,
The Father’s glorified.
Soon wilt thou take thy throne,
Thy foes thy footstool made,
And take us with thee for thine own
In glory love displayed!
Jesus we wait for thee,
With thee to have our part;
What can full joy and blessing be
But being where thou art!
