Blessing, honor, thanks and praise

Blessing, honor, thanks, and praise,
pay we, gracious God, to thee;
thou, in thine abundant grace,
givest us the victory;
true and faithful to thy word,
thou hast glorified thy Son,
Jesus Christ, our dying Lord,
has for us the victory won.

Lo! the prisoner is released,
lightened of his fleshly load;
where the weary are at rest,
and are gathered unto God;
Lo! the pain of life is past,
and his warfare now is o'er,
death and hell behind are cast,
grief and suffering are no more.

Happy are the faithful dead,
bless├Ęd who in Jesus die;
they from all their toils are freed,
in God's keeping safely lie.
These the Spirit hath declared
blest, unutterably blest,
Jesus is their great reward,
Jesus is their endless rest.

Absent from our loving Lord
we shall not continue long;
join we then, with one accord,
in the new, the joyful song;
Blessing, honor, thanks, and praise,
pay we, gracious God, to thee;
thou, in thine abundant grace,
givest us the victory!
