How blessed is our portion When we




How blessed is our portion!
When we look
Upward, within the veil,
our life is there:
Our names are written
in the Lamb's own book,
For grace hath made us
each with Him an heir
Of all those glories,
which by right belong
To Him, whose worthiness
is heaven's eternal song.


We have a Father
in the heavens above,
We have a happy home
prepared on high;
We have a Saviour,
whose surpassing love
Made Him content
e'en for our sins to die;
He fought, and has
our cruel foes o'ercome,
And has engaged
to guard, and bring
us safely home.


Yes, blessed is
our portion! blessed He,
Who, in His grace
before the world began,
Did set on us His love
sovereign and free,
On us the sinful heirs of dying man;
And blessed us with
all blessings in His Son
Whose priceless love
our hearts from sin and folly won.
