Hymn 47 Derby 5.5.5.11. From Sacred Harmony[midi] [score]

1 COME, let us anew
Our journey pursue,
Roll round with the year,
Roll round with the year,
And never stand still
And never stand still till the Master appear.

2 His adorable will
Let us gladly fulfil,
And our talents improve,
And our talents improve,
By the patience of hope,
By the patience of hope, and the labour of love.

3 Our life is a dream;
Our time as a stream
Glides swiftly away,
Glides swiftly away,
And the fugitive moment
And the fugitive moment refuses to stay.

4 The arrow is flown,
The moment is gone;
The millennial year
The millennial year
Rushes on to our view,
Rushes on to our view, and eternity's here.

5 O that each in the day
Of his coming may say,
"I have fought my way through,
"I have fought my way through,
I have finished the work
I have finished the work thou didst give me to do!"

6 O that each from his Lord
May receive the glad word,
"Well and faithfully done!
"Well and faithfully done!
Enter into my joy,
Enter into my joy, and sit down on my throne."
