329. God's Sovereign Grace to Us Has Given

C.M.
1
God's sovereign grace to us has given,
 
While pilgrims here below,
 
A share in all the joys of heaven,
 
And that blest heaven to know.
2
With thankful hearts we now can bid
 
Farewell to pleasure here!
 
With Christ in God our life is hid,
 
And all its springs are there.
3
'Tis now concealed and lodged secure
 
In God's eternal Son,
 
And there, as He, it shall endure,
 
Though to the world unknown.
4
Then, Lord, remove whate'er divides
 
Our longing souls from Thee;
 
'Tis fit that where the Head resides,
 
The members' hearts should be.
