O Lord! 'tis joy to look above,
 
And see Thee on the throne,
 
To search the heights and depths of love
 
Which Thou to us hast shown.
Hebrews 1:3; Ephesians 3:17-19

To look beyond the long, dark night,
 
And hail the coming day,
 
When Thou, to all Thy saints in light,
 
Thy glories wilt display.
Romans 13:12; Colossians 1:12; John 17:24

And, oh! 'tis joy the path to trace
 
By Thee so meekly trod;
 
Learning of Thee to walk in grace,
 
And fellowship with God!
Matthew 11:29; 1 John 2:6; 1 Peter 2:21; 1 John 1:3

Joy to confess Thy blessèd name,
 
The virtue of Thy blood,
 
And to the wearied heart proclaim,
 
Behold the Lamb of God!
