What wondrous, mighty work is this, 

Un-fold-ed by our Lord;

It gives our souls a taste for bliss,

To read his ho-ly word;

'Twas born in "heaven's immortal bow'rs,"

That blessed heaven above;

It gives us strength in lonely hours,

And is the work of love.

We have received by this bright theme

A hope of lasting life,

Beyond the shore of death's dark stream,

Beyond this world of strife;

'Tis far beyond the stars and sun,

That blissful heaven above;

There we can dwell, when time is done

By serving God in love.

'T was from that realm of love divine,

That Jesus came to die;

As "God is love," let it combine,

To aid us home on high;

O'er all our race may it prevail,

As it prevails above;

And they at death will not bewail,

For they have lived in love.

'T is love unites God's church on earth,

As it unites in heaven;

Then may we live to own His worth,

And love the law He's given;

Let every breast retain it joy,

Till Jesus from above

Calls us where pain will ne'er annoy,

Where all is peace and love.
