Tried is every faithful man,
As gold and silver tried,
Purged by grief, and purged by pain,
And seven times purified:
All who stand the fiery test,
Receive Thine image from above,
Bear Thy favorite name impressed,
Thy favorite name of love.
Brought into the fire I am,
And Thou wilt bring me through,
I shall call upon Thy name,
With all the creatures new;
I shall prove Thine utmost word,
Brightened with Thy glory, shine,
Claimed by Thee, shall claim my Lord
Through endless ages mine.
