1. Lift up your hearts to things above,
Ye followers of the Lamb,
And join with us to praise His love,
And glorify His name.
To Jesus’ name give thanks and sing,
Whose mercies never end:
Rejoice! rejoice! the Lord is king;
The King is now our friend!
2. We, for His sake, count all things loss;
On earthly good look down;
And joyfully sustain the cross,
Till we receive the crown.
O let us stir each other up,
Our faith by works to approve,
By holy, purifying hope,
And the sweet task of love!
3. Let all who for the promise wait
The Holy Ghost receive,
And raised to our unsinning state,
With God in Eden live.
Live, till the Lord in glory come,
And wait His heav’n to share;
He now is fitting up your home:
Go on—we’ll meet you there!
