The saints of earth and those above

Full Text

One Church above, beneath;
Tho' now divided by the stream,
The narrow stream of death.

3 One army of the living God,
To His command we bow;
Part of the host have crossed the flood,
And part are crossing now.

4 Lo! thousands to their endless home
Are swiftly borne away;
And we are to the margin come
And soon must launch as they.

5 Lord Jesus, be our constant Guide;
Then, when the word is given,
Bid death’s flood its waves divide
And land us safe in heaven.

Amen.
