Original text and translations
1 Thou, who dost build for us on high
A house beyond the shining sky:
Draw us to Thee above
With cords of love.
2 Thou source of good, most gracious Lord;
Thyself shall be our great reward:
We wake from life's brief night
To endless light.
3 Then shall we see Thee as Thou art,
With open face and joyful heart,
And love Thee and adore
4 If Thou dost love us, leave us not;
But send down from that pure calm spot
The Holy Ghost to prove
Thy fostering love.
5 Thou, who shalt come our Judge to be,
Jesu, all glory be to Thee:
Save us, we humbly pray,
In that great day. Amen.
