682. In Heaven Above

1 In heaven above, in beaven above,
where God our Father dwells,
how boundless there the blessèdness--
no tongue its greatness tells!
There face to face, and full and free,
the everlasting God we see,
our God, the Lord of hosts!

2 In heaven above, in heaven above,
what glory deep and bright!
The splendor of the noonday sun
grows pale before its light;
that mighty Sun that ne’er goes down,
before whose face clouds never frown,
is God the Lord of hosts!

3 In heaven above, in heaven above,
no tears of pain are shed;
for nothing there can fade or die,
life’s fullness round is spread;
and, like an ocean, joy o’erflows,
and with immortal mercy glows
our God, the Lord of hosts!

4 In heaven above, in heaven above,
God has a joy prepared,
which mortal ear has never heard,
nor mortal vision shared,
which never entered mortal thought,
in mortal dreams was never sought,
O God, the Lord of hosts!
