833: We Have Caught The Vision Splendid

Meter:   8.7.8.7. D. Trochiac
Book:   1987 Song Book
Chapter:   The Salvation Soldier

1.
We have caught the vision splendid
Of a world which is to be,
When the pardoning love of Jesus
Freely flows from sea to sea,
When all men from strife and anger,
Greed and selfishness are free,
When the nations live together
In sweet peace and harmony.

2.
We would help to build the city
Of our God, so wondrous fair;
Give our time, bring all our talents,
And each gift of beauty rare,
Powers of mind, and strength of purpose,
Days of labor, nights of strain,
That God's will may be accomplished,
O'er the kingdoms he shall reign.

3.
Founded on the rock of ages,
Built upon God's promise sure,
Strengthened by the cords of service,
We shall stand firm and secure;
When the Father, Son and Spirit
Crown our labors with success,
Men and angels then uniting
Shall God's mighty love confess.
