CLXXXIX. Heaven invisible and Holy

1 Nor Eye has seen, nor Ear has heard,
Nor Sense nor Reason known,
What Joys the Father hath prepar'd
For those that Love the Son.

2 But the good Spirit of the Lord
Reveals A Heav'n to come:
The Beams of Glory in his Word
Allure and guide us home.

3 Pure are the Joys above the Sky,
And all the Region Peace;
No wanton Lips, nor envious Eye
Can see or taste the Bliss.

4 Those holy Gates for ever bar
Pollution, Sin, and Shame;
None shall obtain Admittance there,
But Foll'wers of the Lamb.

5 He keeps the Father's Book of Life,
There all their Names are found;
The Hypocrite in vain shall strive
To tread the heav'nly Ground.
