Tune: Quebec

('Jesu, thou joy of loving hearts')

1 Peter 1 v.3-5


Blessed be the God and Father, He

Father of our Lord Jesus be

The Lord Jesus Christ, His true Son

Becomes here the atoning One


According to God's abundant

Mercy, He has His Son us sent

And has begotten us again

Salvation now unto all men* (*mankind)


Born again, or born from above

To a living hope by His love

It be by the resurrection

Of Jesus Christ, the risen Son


Begotten to inheritance

Which nothing can remove us thence

It be life incorruptible

And undefiled, spotless in all


And it fades not away, but be

Reserved in heaven for you, see

You who are kept by God's power

Unto salvation's final hour
