The Christian

Image of tune Faithful Soldier (may not be posted yet)

232 (7.6.7.6.D) John Leland

Oh, when shall I see Jesus

And reign with Him above,

And from the flowing fountain

Drink everlasting love?

When shall I be delivered

From this vain world of sin,

And with my blessed Jesus

Drink endless pleasure in?

But now I am a soldier,

My Captain's gone before;

He's given me my orders,

And bid me not to fear.

His promises are faithful,

A crown of life He'll give;

And all His valiant soldiers

Eternally shall live.

Through grace He will support me,

To conquer, though I die;

And then away to Jesus

On wings of love I'll fly.

Farewell to sin and sorrow,

I bid you both adieu;

And, O my friends, still trust Him,

And on your way pursue.

Whene'er you meet with troubles

And trials on the way,

Cast all your care on Jesus,

And don't forget to pray:

Gird on the gospel armor

Of faith, and hope, and love;

And when the combat's ended

He'll carry you above.

Oh, do not be discouraged,

For Jesus is your friend,

And if you want more knowledge,

He'll not refuse to send:

Neither will He upbraid you,

Though often you request;

He'll give you grace to conquer,

And take you home to rest.

And when the last, loud trumpet

Shall rend the vaulted skies,

And bid the entombed millions

From their cold beds arise,

Our ransomed dust, revivèd,

Bright beauties shall put on,

And soar to the blest mansion

Where our Redeemer's gone.

Our eyes shall then with rapture

The Saviour's face behold;

Our feet, no more diverted,

Shall walk the streets of gold;

Our ears shall hear with transport

The hosts celestial sing;

Our tongues shall chant the glories

Of our immortal King.
