1.  Make my calling and election,

Jesus, every day more sure;

Keep me under Thy direction,

Till I, through almighty power,

Unto endless glory raised,

In Thy mansions shall be placed:

When in Thee I end my race,

Weeping shall for ever cease.

2.  Amen, yea, my lasting praises,

Jesus, unto Thee are given,

That a place by Thee prepared

Is for me secured in heaven;

Blest my case, ah! truly blessed,

When to heavenly glory raised,

I from pain and sorrow free,

Live evermore with Thee.
