Blest be the everlasting God The Father




Blest be the everlasting God,
The Father of our Lord!
Be his abounding mercy praised,
His majesty adored!


When from the dead
he raised his Son,
And called him to the sky,
He gave our souls a lively hope
That they should never die.


What though the frame of man require
Our flesh to see the dust,
Yet as the Lord our Saviour rose,
So all his followers must.


There’s an inheritance divine
Reserved against that day;
‘Tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
And cannot waste away.


Saints by the power of God are kept,
Till that salvation come:
We walk by faith as strangers here,
Till Christ shall call us home.


There’s an inheritance divine
Reserved against that day;
‘Tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
And cannot fade away.


Saints by the power of God are kept,
Till that salvation come:
We walk by faith as strangers here,
Till Christ shall call us home.


---Alternative verses---


What though our inbred sins require
Our flesh to see the dust,
Yet as the Lord our Savior rose,
So all his followers must.


There’s an inheritance divine
Reserved against that day;
‘Tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
And cannot fade away.


To an inheritance divine
He taught our hearts to rise;
‘Tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
Unfading in the skies.


Saints by the power of God are kept,
Till that salvation come:
We walk by faith as strangers here,
But Christ shall call us home.
