Chosen in Christ before the world began,
Redeemed through the munificence of grace,
Associated with the heavenly Man.
Given the Earnest of a settled place,
Clothed in the worth of One raised from the dead,
Enregistered in an undying race,
United by the Spirit to the Head,
Forming a part of the illustrious bride,
In this dry wilderness refreshed and fed,
Rejoicing in the food which will abide,
Waiting to share Christ’s glory by His side.
