Lyrics

A thousand tongues could ne’er impart
The gladness of a trusting heart;
There’s life eternal, free from pain,
For all who dwell upon this plain.

Refrain

Obey the truth of God’s dear Son
Until life’s journey shall be done,
And He will take you home to rest,
Forever with the pure and blest.

’Twas thro’ His Gospel to the world
Our earthly freedom was unfurled,
And thro’ His blood, for you and me,
There’s joy and immortality.

Refrain

No one but Christ has power to save
He rose a victor o’er the grave.
And till His glories you shall view,
To Him be faithful and be true.
