Hymn/Song Information

BE OF GOOD CHEER




Cheer up, desponding soul!
Thy longing pleased I see:
‘Tis part of that great whole
Wherewith I longed for thee—


Wherewith I longed for thee,
And left my Father’s throne:
From death to set thee free,
And claim thee for my own—


To claim thee for my own,
I suffered on the cross:
Oh, were my love but known,
All else would be as dross!—


All else would be as dross!
And souls, through grace divine,
Would count their gain but loss
To live for ever mine!
