Our bondage it shall end, by and by, by and by, 
Our bondage it shall end, by and by; 
From Egypt’s yoke set free; 
Hail the glorious jubilee, 
And to Canaan we’ll return, by and by, by and by, 
And to Canaan we’ll return, by and by.

Our deliverer He shall come, by and by, by and by, 
Our deliverer He shall come, by and by; 
And our sorrows have an end, 
With our threescore years and ten, 
And vast glory crown the day, by and by, by and by, 
And vast glory crown the day, by and by.

And when to Jordan’s floods, we are come, we are come, 
And when to Jordan’s floods, we are come; 
Jehovah rules the tide, 
And the waters he’ll divide, 
And the ransomed host shall shout, we are come, we are come, 
And the ransomed host shall shout, we are come.

Then with all the happy throng, we’ll rejoice, we’ll rejoice, 
Then with all the happy throng, we’ll rejoice; 
Shouting glory to our King, 
Till the vaults of heaven ring, 
And through all eternity we’ll rejoice, we’ll rejoice, 
And through all eternity we’ll rejoice.

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
Who unto the Savior for refuge have fled?

In every condition—in sickness, in health,
In poverty’s vale or abounding in wealth,
At home or abroad, on the land or the sea—
As thy days may demand, so thy succor shall be.

Fear not, I am with thee; oh, be not dismayed,
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid.
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
I will not, I cannot, desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.

Death shall not destroy my comfort,
Christ shall guide me through the gloom;
Down He’ll send some heavenly convoy,
To escort my spirit home.

Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.

Jordan’s stream shall not o’erflow me,
While my Savior’s by my side;
Canaan, Canaan lies before me; 
Soon I’ll cross the swelling tide. 

Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.

See the happy spirits waiting,
On the banks beyond the stream; 
Sweet responses still repeating,
“Jesus! Jesus!” is their theme. 

Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.

Some beautiful music for the fourth Sunday of Advent

December 18, 2016

It’s the birthday of the English hymn writer Charles Wesley (1707-1788), many of whose hymns — this one, for instance — are among the most familiar and best-loved in Christendom.
