Christ My Song - 777
'Tis finished all – our souls to win - Our Friend in heaven
(Sir Edward Denny/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Our Friend in heaven.
"I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do."
2. Past suffering now, the tender heart
of Jesus, on his Father's throne,
still in o u r sorrow bears a part,
and feels it as he felt his own.
3. Sweet thought! we have a friend above,
our weary falt'ring steps to guide,
who follows with the eye of love
the little flock for whom he died.
4. O Jesus, teach us more and more
on thee alone to cast our car;
and, gazing on thy cross, adore
the wondrous grace that brought thee there.
Sir Edward Denny, Hymns and Poems, 1870, 48-49.
