The saints abide in peace;
And all creation here below
Their King and Savior know.
 
Hymn 31 • Let us pray, gladly pray
HYMN 31. P. M.
 
1 Let us pray, gladly pray,
In the house of Jehovah,
Till the righteous can say,
“O our warfare is over!”
Then we’ll dry up our tears,
Sweetly praising together,
Through the great thousand years,
Face to face with the Savior.
 
2 What a joy will be there,
At the great resurrection,
As the saints meet in air,
In their robes of perfection;
Then the Lamb—then the Lamb,
With a God’s mandatory,
As I AM THAT I AM,
Fills the world with his glory.
 
3 We can then live in peace,
With a joy on the mountains,
As the earth doth increase,
With a joy by the fountains,
For the world will be blest, [p. 41]
The saints abide in peace;
And all creation here below
Their King and Savior know.
