Now can my soul in God rejoice,
I feel my Saviour's cheering voice:
My heart awakes to sing his praise
And longs to join immortal lays.

The kingdom of my Lord is come,
This day I've found my father's home;
O might I rove from him no more
Long as I tread this mortal shore.

Hold me, O Jesus, in thine arms,
And cheer me with immortal charms,
Till I awake in realms above
For ever to enjoy thy love.
