BY faith we find the place above,

By A Collection of Hymns

      C.M. Part II
      1 BY faith we find the place above,
      The Rock that rent in twain;
      Beneath the shade of divine love,
      And in the clefts remain.

      2 Jesus, to thy dear wounds we flee,
      We sink into thy side;
      Assured that all who trust in thee
      Shall evermore abide.

      3 Then let the thundering trumpet sound,
      The latest lightning glare,
      The mountains melt, the solid ground
      Dissolve as liquid air;

      4 The huge celestial bodies roll,
      Amidst that general fire,
      And shrivel as a parchment-scroll,
      And all in smoke expire!

      5 Yet still the Lord, the Saviour reigns,
      When nature is destroyed,
      And no created thing remains
      Throughout the flaming void.

      6 Sublime upon his azure throne,
      He speaks the almighty word;
      His fiat is obeyed! 'tis done;
      And Paradise restored.

      7 So be it! let this system end,
      This ruinous earth and skies,
      The new Jerusalem descend,
      The new creation rise!

      8 Thy power omnipotent assume,
      Thy brightest majesty!
      And when thou dost in glory come,
      My Lord, remember me!
