     1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.(KJV)

1. Lord Jesus Christ, my Life, my Light, 
My Strength by day, my Trust by night, 
On earth I’m but a passing guest 
And sorely with my sins opprest. 

2. Far off I see my fatherland, 
Where through Thy blood I hope to stand. 
But ere I reach that Paradise, 
A weary way before me lies. 

3. My heart sinks at the journey’s length, 
My wasted flesh has little strength; 
My soul alone still cries in me: 
“Lord, take me home, take me to Thee!” 

4. Oh, let Thy sufferings give me power 
To meet the last and darkest hour! 
Thy blood refresh and comfort me; 
Thy bonds and fetters make me free.
