They who long in sin have lain,
And felt the hand of dire oppression,
All releas’d from Satan’s chain,
And are endow’d with long possession.
Sick and sore, the blind and lame,
The maladies of all are healed,
Outlawed rebels, too, may claim,
And find a pardon freely sealed.

Do not fear; the cause is good;
Come! who will to the crown aspire?
In this cause the martyrs bled,
Or shouted vict’ry in the fire;
In this cause let’s follow on,
And soon we’ll tell the pleasing story,
How by faith we gained the crown,
And fought our way to life and glory.
