1.  How blest are they who through the power

Of heaven-kindled faith

Confide in Thee each day and hour,

O Christ of Nazareth!

2.  Grant us a firmer, stronger faith

In Thee, O crucified;

In joy and pain, in life and death,

With Thy redeemed abide.

3.  Thy pardon, full, complete, bestow

Upon Thy ransomed own,

That all the Father’s love may know,

And trust Thy grace alone.

4.  What joy, when faith is changed to sight,

And heaven’s gates we see,

To laud Thy Name in mansions bright,

Through all eternity!
