And claim my mansion and crown.
There will be sweet rest.
In Zion, the city of the blessed.

Jesus Savior, we praise your name.
Lord, we praise your divine mercy.
From age to age you remain the same.
King through all eternity.
To you our songs of joy we raise.
Great are you, the God of all creation.
Receive our thanks and praise.
For the blessed gift of salvation.
You are the king of glory, O Christ.
Son of God, yet born of humble birth.
You shed your blood, offering a great sacrifice.
Redeeming all people on the earth.
Savior, you were raised from the grave.
Destroying death’s sharp sting.
You alone have power to save.
And you reign as our Lord and King.
In your Eucharist, you feed the soul.
And strengthen us by your grace.
By your Word and Sacrament, we are made whole.
Equipped and ready to run the earthly race.
The Holy Spirit guides us in this life.
Keeping us in your loving care.
He comforts us in times of pain and strife.
Giving us peace in times of despair.
Savior, you have opened heaven’s door.
And have given us victory over sin.
You abide with us forevermore.
Giving us peace that will never end.
We rejoice in your Gospel story.
Which tells us about the forgiveness of sin.
You are worthy of all glory.
We sing praises without end.
Guide your people each day.
Save us from the devil’s snares that surround us.
Strengthen us, O Lord, we pray.
Keep us in faith. Let nothing confound us.
Surround us with your peace and love.
Let us neither stumble nor fall away.
Take us to be with you in heaven above.
With the Saints, to shine in bright array.
