Praise the Lord, who firmly joined us

1
Praise the Lord, who firmly joined us
  Unto the Anointed One.
Thus we all have been anointed
  With th’ anointing of the Son.
2
Now in Christ, in the anointing,
  We are the anointed ones.
Oh, how blessed is this ointment
  Poured upon the many sons!
3
Hallelujah, the anointing
  Unto us God’s essence brings;
It is now abiding in us,
  And it teaches us all things.
4
We’re the Lord’s peculiar treasure,
  Purchased by His precious blood.
He has put His seal upon us,
  We are those marked out by God.
5
Day by day we’re under sealing,
  That we may His likeness share.
By the impress of His Person
  We will Jesus’ image bear.
6
Now we have the pledge, the foretaste,
  Of the Christ we soon will see.
We are longing for the full taste—
  God, our feast eternally.
7
God has wrought us for this purpose,
  Giving us the earnest here,
Guarantee of full enjoyment
  Of our Lord Himself, so dear.
8
The anointing, seal, and earnest—
  In our spirit are all three.
Such a wondrous, blest deposit
  God has given you and me.
