6164. Stalham

1 Quiet through the streets with silver sound
The flood of life doth flow,
Upon whose banks on every side
The wood of life doth grow.

2 There trees for evermore bear fruit,
And evermore do spring;
There evermore the angels be,
And evermore do sing.

3 There David stands with harp in hand
As master of the choir:
Ten thousand times that man were blessed
That might this music hear.

4 Our Lady sings Magnificat
With tune surpassing sweet,
And all the virgins bear their part,
Sitting at her feet.

5 Te Deum doth Saint Ambrose sing,
Saint Austin doth the like;
Old Simeon and Zachary
Have not their songs to seek.

6 There Magdalen hath left her moan,
And cheerfully doth sing
With blessèd saints, whose harmony
In every street doth ring.

7 Jerusalem, my happy home,
Would God I were in thee!
Would God my woes were at an end
Thy joys that I might see!
