Lyrics

On Thee, great God, we still attend,
’Till judgment shall in mercy end,
And wrath in universal grace:
The promise to Thy church is sure,
Our hearts, and lives, and language pure
Shall speak our New-creator’s praise.

Then every soul his Lord shall know,
And every spotless saint below
Perform Thy will, like those above;
We all shall think, and speak the same,
And serve our God, and praise Thy name,
With perfect harmony and love.
