O when shall I see Jesus,
And reign with him above,
And from the flowing fountain
Drink everlasting love?
When shall I be delivered,
From this vain world of sin?
And with my blessed Jesus
Drink endless pleasures in.

But now I am a soldier,
My Captain’s gone before,
He’s given me my orders,
And bids me ne’er give o’er:
His promises are faithful,
A righteous crown he’ll give,
And all his valiant soldiers
Eternally shall live.

O do not be discouraged,
For Jesus is your friend,
And if you lack for knowledge,
He’ll not refuse to lend,
Neither will he upbraid you,
Though often you request,
He’ll give you grace to conquer,
And take you home to rest.
