1 Ev'ry moment brings me nearer
To my long sought rest above;
Higher mounts my soul, and higher--
O how happy to remove;
Then, for ever,
Shall I sing redeeming love.

2 Soon shall I be gone to glory--
Join the bright, angelic race,
There repeat the pleasing story--
I was sav'd by sovereign grace:
And for ever
View my loving Saviour's face.

3 Tho' my burden sore oppress me,
And I shrink beneath my pain,
Jesus Christ will soon release me,
And your loss will be my gain:
Precious Saviour,
With my Lord I shall remain.
