Father, we worship Thee, our God! What rich, unfathomable grace, On us, in Christ, hast Thou bestowed! Children of wrath (our nature’s place), Now ransomed and with Him made one, Glories around unbounded shine; The fullness of our God alone The limit is of grace divine!

Be strong and of a good courage: for thou shalt bring the children of Israel into the land which I sware unto them: and I will be with thee. (Deut. 31:23)
Take courage, wayworn pilgrim: Though mists and shadows hide The face of Him thou lovest, He’s ever at thy side; Reach out thy hand and find Him, And lo, the clouds have flown; He smiles on thee, who promised, Never to leave thee alone.
