English Hymn 82

STANZA 1
Saviour, blessed Saviour,
Listen while we sing,
Hearts and voices raising
Praises to our King;
All we have to offer,
All we hope to be,
Body, soul, and spirit,
All we yield to Thee.

STANZA 2
Nearer, ever nearer,
Christ, we draw to Thee,
Deep in adoration Bending low the knee.
Thou for our redemption
Cam’st on earth to die;
Thou, that we might follow,
Hast gone up on high.

STANZA 3
Clearer still and clearer
Dawns the light from heaven,
In our sadness bringing
News of sins forgiven;
Life has lost its shadows,
Pure the light within;
Thou hast shed Thy radiance
On a world of sin.

STANZA 4
Onward, ever onward,
Journeying o’er the road
Worn by saints before us,
Journeying on to god;
Leaving all behind us,
May we hasten on,
Backward never looking
Till the prize is won.

STANZA 5
Higher then, and higher,
Bear the ransomed soul,
Earthly toils forgotten,
Saviour, to its goal;
Where, in joys unthought of,
Saints with angels sing,
Never weary, raising
Praises to their King. Amen
