528. My Course Is Run

1 My course is run.
Praise God, my course is run,
My Jesus welcomes me.
Farewell, my friends, my work on earth is done,
The heav'nly goal I see.
My dear Redeemer's praises voicing,
I leave this world with great rejoicing.
My course is run.
My course is run.

2 My course is run.
My Jesus took for me
Upon Himself my guilt.
Upon the cross, the bitter, shameful tree,
For me His blood He spilt,
Thus by His death and grace abounding
For me a refuge surely founding.
My course is run.
My course is run.

3 My course is run.
Now I am free from need,
From dangers, fear, and dread.
With heav'ns bread the Lord will now me feed,
High honors on me shed.
Now I will hear the angels singing,
Sweet songs of seraphim are ringing.
My course is run.
My course is run.

4 My course is run.
Praise God, my course is run,
My Jesus welcomes me.
Farewell, my friends, my work on earth is done,
The heav'nly goal I see.
Freed from all trouble and repining,
I see the open heaven shining.
My course is run.
My course is run.
