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.

Once they were mourning here below
And wet their couch with tears
They wrestled hard, as we do now
With sins, and doubts, and fears.

I ask them whence their victory came
They, with united breath
Ascribe their conquest to the Lamb
Their triumph to His death.

They marked the footsteps that He trod
His zeal inspired their breast
And following their incarnate God
Possess the promised rest.

Our glorious Leader claims our praise
For His own pattern giv'n
While the long cloud of witnesses
Show the same path to Heav'n.

The Gospel song, "Give Me The Wings Of Faith" was written by Isaac Watts in 1709.
