WHAT sinners value I resign;

Lord, 't is enough that thou art mine:

I shall behold thy blissful face,

And stand complete in righteousness.

This life's a dream, an empty show;

But the bright world to which I go

Hath joys substantial and sincere:

When shall I wake and find me there?

O glorious hour! O bless'd abode!

I shall be near, and like my God;

And flesh and sin no more control

The sacred pleasures of the soul.

My flesh shall slumber in the ground,

Till the last trumpet's joyful sound;

Then burst the chains with sweet surprise,

And in my Saviour's image rise.
