“PRECIOUS IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD”
(Tune: O God, Our Help In Ages Past #10 CM)
“Precious in the sight of the Lord
Is the death of His saints.”
Let all who hope upon His Word
Learn what this Scripture means.
Our Father, Who chose us in love
To dwell with Him in peace,
Will gather all His saints above
In perfect holiness.
Christ, Who redeemed us by His blood,
Prays that each chosen one
Be with Him and in heav’n behold
His glory fully shown.
The Holy Spirit, by Whose grace
We now believe in Christ,
Will not His work in our souls cease
`Til we’re at last with Christ.
When God in us His work completes
We shall be freed from sin,
All sickness, pain, and sorrow cease;
At death our life begins!
The true believer never dies
He only makes a move
From this poor, crumbling, house of clay
To that bright home above!
