Yet once again, by God’s abundant mercy,
We join our song of thankfulness and praise;
Ever the light of our Redeemer’s victory
Shineth before us in the world’s dark ways.
Jesus shall conquer, lift up the strain!
Evil shall perish and righteousness shall reign.
O for the time of Christ’s completed mission!
Throbs of its rapture reach us as we pray;
Gleams of its glory bursting on our vision
Send us to labor, urge us on our way.
Stretch out Thy hand, O God, and let the nations
Feel through Thine host the thrill of life divine;
Grant us, we pray, still greater revelations,
Make of these days an everlasting sign.
