Texas 268b

Tune: Stanley Smith, 1988
Lyrics: John Newton, 1779
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
We seek a rest beyond the skies,
In everlasting day;
Through floods and flames the passage lies,
But Jesus guards the way.

The swelling flood, the raging flame,
Hear and obey His word;
Then let us triumph in His name,
Our Saviour is the Lord.
