Blessed be thy Name

Bless├Ęd be thy Name,
Jesus Christ, the same
yesterday, today, for ever!
What from thee my soul shall sever,
while I hear thy voice,
and in thee rejoice?

Hold me with thine hand,
for by faith I stand,
on thy strength my sole reliance,
in thy truth my whole affiance:
then, where'er I roam,
I am traveling home.

Lord, thy word is light;
led by it aright,
when a pilgrim, like my fathers,
life's last shadow round me gathers,
may its brightening ray
shine to perfect day!

With my latest breath,
overcoming death,
from the body disencumbered,
with thy saints in glory numbered,
Jesus, may I be
found in peace with thee!

Praise the Lord most high,
all below the sky;
praise to thine eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
earth and heaven raise
songs of loudest praise!

(1771-1854)
