Christ My Song - 768
I go from grief and sighing - The victory of the Lamb
(Johann Heermann/Frances Bevan/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The victory of the Lamb.
"If we suffer, we shall also reign with him." (2 Timothy 2,12)
1. I go from grief and sighing, the valley and the clod,
to join the chosen people in the palaces of God –
there sounds no cry of battle amidst the shadowing palms,
but the mighty song of victory, and glorious golden psalms. (PDF - Midi)
2. The army of the conquerors, a palm in every hand,
in robes of state and splendour, in rest eternal stand;
those marriage robes of glory, the righteousness of God –
he bought them for his people with his most precious Blood.
3. The Lamb of God has saved them from Hell's deep sea of fire –
the Lamb of God adorns them in spotless white attire;
the Lamb of God presents them as Kings in crowns of light –
as Priests in God's own temple to serve him day and night.
4. Salvation, strength, and wisdom to him whose works and ways
are wonderful and glorious – eternal is his praise:
the Lamb who died and liveth, alive for evermore,
the Saviour who redeemed us, for ever we adore.
