Now Lord According To Thy Word


Now, Lord! according to thy word,
let me in my peace depart;
mine eyes have thy salvation seen,
and gladness fills my heart.

That Sun I now behold, whose light
shall heathen darkness chase,
and rays of brightest glory pour
around thy chosen race.

This great salvation, long prepared,
and now disclosed to view,
hath proved thy love was constant still,
and promises were true.
