|Ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost: and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come. (1 Thess. 1:6,10)
|Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that He will yet deliver us. (2 Cor. 1:10)
|Quickened, raised, and in Him seated,
We a full deliverance know;
Every foe has been defeated,
Every enemy laid low.
|Soon, O Lord, in brightest glory,
All its vastness we’ll explore;
While we wait Thy promised coming,
We will worship and adore.
