Give me the wings of faith to rise

Give me the wings of faith to rise
within the veil and see
the saints above, how great their joys,
how bright their glories be.

2. Once they were mourners here below
and poured out cries and tears;
they wrestled hard, as we do now,
with sins and doubts and fears.

3. I ask from where their victory came;
they, with united breath,
ascribe their conquest to the Lamb,
their triumph to his death.

4. They marked the footsteps that he trod,
their hearts with zeal possessed;
and, following their incarnate God,
enjoy the promised rest.

5. Our glorious leader claims our praise
for his own pattern given,
while the long cloud of witnesses
show the same path to heaven.
