GEC English Hymn

English Hymn 79

STANZA 1
Give me the wings of faith to rise
Within the veil, and see
The saints above, how great their joys,
How bright their glories be.

STANZA 2
Once they were mourning here below,
And poured out cries and tears:
They wrestled hard, as we do now,
With sins, and doubts, and fears.

STANZA 3
I ask them whence their victory came:
They, with united breath,
Ascribe their conquest to the Lamb,
Their triumph to His death.

STANZA 4
They marked the footsteps that He trod,
His zeal inspired their breast;
And, following their incarnate God,
Possess the promised rest

STANZA 5
Our glorious Leader claims our praise
For His own pattern given;
While the long cloud of witnesses
Show the same path to heaven.
