1 Highly favored congregation,
loved by Jesus and esteemed,
ne’er forget thy destination,
why from this vain world redeemed.

2 Grounded on your Savior’s merit,
blessed in his communion sweet,
destined heaven to inherit,
and the church above to meet.

3 Witness here to all around you
of your Savior’s dying love;
tell them how he sought and found you,
gave you grace from heav'n above.

4 Evidence by word and action
that your faith is not in vain,
that your highest satisfaction
centers in the Lamb once slain.

5 By love’s closest bonds united,
as the Lord’s own family,
be to serve his name excited,
be to him a fruitful tree.
