Hymn/Song Information

We're not of the world which fadeth away




We're not of the world
which fadeth away,
We're not of the night,
but children of day;
The chains that once bound us
by Jesus are riven,
We're strangers on earth,
and our home is in heaven.


Our path is most rugged,
and dangerous too,
A wide trackless waste
our journey lies through;
But the pillar of cloud
that shows us our way
Is our sure light by night,
and shades us by day.


Our Shepherd is still
our Guardian and Guide;
Before us He goes
to help and provide;
The springs that refresh us
by Him have been given,
Our bread is the Manna
that came down from heaven.


'Mid mightiest foes
most feeble are we,
Yet trembling before
our great Leader they flee;
The Lord is our banner,
the battle is His,
The weakest of saints
more than conqueror is.


And soon shall we enter
our own promised land,
Before His bright throne
in glory shall stand;
Our song then for ever
and ever shall be,
All glory and blessing,
Lord Jesus, to Thee!
