Enough if Thou at last
All glory, Lord, to Thee,
O Jesu Lobd, the Way, the Truth,
The Life, the Crown of all
O hear us when we call.
We bring to mind with grateful joy
Thy servants, who of old Withstood the snares of earth and hell,

And that communion knew, Which saints and angels share above
With those who seek it too.

Like them to live and die in Thee,

Whom the first sign of heavenly power
They as they walk this painful world,
See hidden glories rise;
Unfolds before their eyes.

Whose bliss no heart of man can reach,
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God whom we adcre,
And shall be evermore. A.men.

Alike in happiness or woe,
With earnest zeal 'twas Thy delight To do Thy Father's will: O may such zeal our souls excite, His precepts to fulfil.
If in some dark affliction's day
In Thee a sacred burning love
Supported by Almighty grace,
All glory to the Father be,
