Each Passing Moment Claiming


Each passing moment claiming
The grace and strength we need,
We would be always naming
The name we love to plead.

His holy life forth showing
Along our upward way;
His image in us growing
More life-like day by day.

Our very faces beaming
Doxologies unsung;
Our ransomed natures seeming
To heavenly music strung.

For ever o’er us streaming
The light of Jesu’s love,
In the fair distance gleaming
The pearly gates above.

Then in the kingdom bending
Before our Saviour’s feet,
Life’s dark enigmas ending
In hallelujahs sweet.

No trembling notes of sadness;
The rest of faith becomes
A rest in love and gladness-
Eternal glory won.
