in thy way, our willing feet shall tread; what joy thy mandate to obey, our great and glorious Head.
Thy all abounding grace has banished sin and night; and in the glory of thy face we see the eternal light.
By thy direction led, with gladness we confess that we to sin’s dark power are dead and risen to righteousness.
The closing waters hide our former world and we, seeking through death our Saviour’s side, rejoice to die with Thee.
And as we rise again, be this confession given, that we have risen with Christ to reign, the Lord of earth and heaven.
So would we die to live, and live no more to die, our risen lives O Christ receive, and seal them in the sky.
