Charles Wesley, 1767

2. We have laid up our love
And treasure above,
Though our bodies continue below;
The redeemed of the Lord
We remember his word,
And with singing to Zion we go.

3. With singing we praise
The original grace
By our heavenly Father bestowed,
Our being receive
From his bounty, and live
To the honor and glory of God.

4. For thy glory we are
Created to share
Both the nature and kingdom divine:
Created again,
That our souls may remain
In time and eternity thine.

5. With thanks we approve
The design of thy love
Which hath joined us, in Jesus his name,
So united in heart,
That we never can part,
Till we meet at the feast of the Lamb.

6. There, there at his seat
We shall suddenly meet,
And be parted in body no more,
We shall sing to our lyres
With the heavenly choirs,
And our Savior in glory adore.

2. We have laid up our love
And our treasure above,
Though our bodies continue below;
The redeemed of the Lord
We remember his word,
And with singing to Zion we go.

3. With singing we all praise
The original grace
By our heavenly Father bestowed,
Our being we receive
From his bounty, and live
To the honor and glory of God.

4. For thy glory we are
Created to all share
Both the nature and kingdom divine:
Created all again,
That our souls may remain
In time and eternity thine.

5. With thanks we all approve
The design of thy love
Which hath joined us, in Jesus his name,
So united in heart,
That we never can part,
Till we meet at the feast of the Lamb.

6. There at, there at his seat
We shall suddenly meet,
And be parted in body no more,
We shall sing to our lyres
With the heavenly choirs,
And our Savior in glory adore.
