2 Ye blessed souls at rest,

Who ran this earthly race, And now, from sin released,

Behold your Saviour's face, God's praises sound, as in His light With sweet delight ye do abound.

'1 What shall I render to my God
For all His kindness shown?
My feet shall visit Thine abode,
My songs address Thy throne.

4 My soul, bear thou thy part,
Triumph in God above,
And with a well-tuned heart

2 How much is mercy Thy delight,
Thou ever-blessed God!
How dear Thy servants in Thy sight!
How precious is their blood!

at God's right hand,

John H. Gower, 1895

Sing thou the songs of love:
Let all thy days till life shall end,
Whate'er He send, be filled with praise.

3 Ye saints who toil below,

Adore your heavenly King,
And onward as ye go

Some joyful anthem sing;
Take what He gives, and praise Him still,
Through good and ill, who ever lives.

Rev. Richard Baxter, 1681: recast by Rev. Richard R. Chope, 1857

3 How happy all Thy servants are!
How great Thy grace to me!

My life, which Thou hast made Thy care,
Lord, I devote to Thee.

4 Here in Thy courts I leave my vow,
And Thy rich grace record;
Witness, ye saints who hear me now,
If I forsake the Lord.

Psalm cxvi. Rev. Isaac Watts, 1719

1 Lord of the hearts of men,

Thou hast vouchsafed to bless,
From age to age, Thy chosen saints

With fruits of holiness.

2 Show us, Lord, the goal of life,

And give us heart to run;

Breathe the peace that follows strife,
Lest future work we shun:
Hearts that hasty time has grieved
Are by.Sabbath calm relieved.

2 Here faith and hope and love Reign in sweet bond allied; There, when this little day is o'er,

Shall love alone abide.

John H. Gower, 1895: alt.

For ever Thy delight:

4 We would pray as those who stand
Their truest Friend beside,
Whom He takes as by the hand,
Unto their God to guide;
By His power, and for His sake,
Fully us Thy children make.

Rev. Thomas T. Lynch, 1855

O rest from thousand labors past!
O endless Sabbath day!

4 Here, amid cares and tears,

Bearing the seed we come;
There, with rejoicing hearts, we bring
Our harvest burdens home.

5 Give, mighty Lord Divine,

The fruits Thyself dost love;
Soon shalt Thou, from Thy judgment-seat,
Crown Thine own gifts above.
