And Are We Yet Alive

By Charles Wesley

      And are we yet alive,
            and see each other's face?
      Glory and thanks to Jesus give
            for his almighty grace!

      Preserved by power divine
            to full salvation here,
      again in Jesus' praise we join,
            and in his sight appear.

      What troubles have we seen,
            what mighty conflicts past,
      fightings without, and fears within,
            since we assembled last!

      Yet out of all the Lord
            hath brought us by his love;
      and still he doth his help afford,
            and hides our life above.

      Then let us make our boast
            of his redeeming power,
      which saves us to the uttermost,
            till we can sin no more.

      Let us take up the cross
            till we the crown obtain,
      and gladly reckon all things loss
            so we may Jesus gain.
