2 Thou wast their Rock, their Fortress and their Might;
Thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight;
8 From earth's wide bounds, from ocean's farthest coast,
Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host,
Men once like us with suf-f'ring tried, But now with glo - ry crown'd. A-men.
2 Let us, with zeal like theirs inspired, 4 He, for the joy before Him set, Strive in the Christian race;
And moved by pitying love, And, freed from every weight of sin, Endured the Cross, despised the shame, Their holy footsteps trace.
And now He reigns above. 3 Behold a Witness nobler still, 5 Thither, forgetting things behind, Who trod affliction's path;
Press we to God's right hand; Jesus, the author, finisher,
There, with the Saviour and His saints, Rewarder of our faith:
Triumphantly to stand. Amen.
3 Then praise we God the Father,
And praise we God the Son,
Eternal Three in One;
Fall down before the throne,
Horatio, Earl Nelson
Round the al - tar, night and day, Tun - ing their tri -umph-ant song?
“ Wor - thy is the Lamb, once slain, Bless - ing, hon - or,
Wis-dom, rich- es
to ob - tain,
New do- min- ion
ev-'ry hour." A-men.
2 These through fiery trials trod;
These from great affliction came;
Sealed with His eternal Name;
Victor palms in ev'ry hand,
More than conquerors they stand.
3 Hunger, thirst, disease unknown,
On immortal fruits they feed; Them the Lamb amidst the throne,
Shall to living fountains lead:
Perfect love dispels their fears;
