915. And are we yet alive

1 And are we yet alive,
And see each other’s face?
Glory and praise to Jesus give
For his redeeming grace!
Preserved by power divine
To full salvation here,
Again in Jesus’ praise we join,
And in his sight appear.

2 What troubles we have seen,
What conflicts we have passed,
Fightings without and fears within,
Since we assembled last!
But out of all the Lord
Has brought us by his love;
And still he doth his help afford,
And hides our life above.

3 Then let us make our boast
Of his redeeming power,
Which saves us to the uttermost,
Till we shall sin no more.
Let us take up the cross,
Till we the crown obtain,
And gladly reckon all things loss,
So we may Jesus gain.
