With Heart And Lips Unfeigned

With heart and lip unfeign’d,
We praise thee for thy word;
We bless thee for the joyful news
Of our redeeming LORD.

O let thy present voice,
Accomplish thy design,
Distil on all our thirsty souls,
And consecrate us thine.

Water thy sacred seed,
And give it great increase;
Let neither fowls nor rocks nor thorns,
Hinder the fruits of peace.

Then tho’ we weeping sow,
And tears our hearts employ;
We know we shall return again,
And bring our sheaves with joy.

Our lives now hid with Christ,
With him shall soon appear;
And we array’d in all his light,
Shall meet him in the air.
