Ever, only one theme sounding

 



Ever, only one theme sounding,
Bliss, delight and joyousness.
Grace eternal is abounding,
For those clad in "righteousness."
 
Jesus, quite enthralled, is staring
At His lovely transformed bride,
Cleansed, redeemed she now is wearing
Pure white robe her Lord supplied.
 
Jesus, Jesus, You are calling
Sinners by Your side to stand;
O, my Jesus, I am coming,
I will clasp Your pierced hand.
 
O, Your way is full of splendour,
In Your hand of love take me,
May I love and serve with ardour,
Ever faithful to You be.
