O JESUS, the giver of all we enjoy,

Our lives to thy honor we wish to employ;

With praises unceasing we'll sing of thy name,

Thy goodness increasing, thy love we'll proclaim.

With joy we remember the dawn of that day,

When cold as December in darkness we lay;

The sweet invitation we heard with surprise,

And witnessed salvation to flow from the skies.

The wonderful name of our Jesus we'll sing,

And publish the fame of our Captain and King;

With sweet exultation his goodness we prove,

His name is Salvation-his nature is Love.

We now are enlisted in Jesus' blessed cause,

Divinely assisted, to conquer our foes;

His grace will support us till conflicts are o'er,

He then will escort us to Zion's bright shore.

And when to the regions of glory we rise,

And join the bright legions that shout through the skies,

We'll tell the glad story of Jesus' kind grace,

And give him the glory, the honor, and praise.

In this blest employment our spirits shall rest,

In sweetest enjoyment on Jesus' own breast;

We'll drink of the streams of Immanuel's love,

And bask in the beams of his glory above.
