1 And may I still get there?
Still reach the heavenly shore?
The land forever bright and fair,
Where sorrow reigns no more?

There’ll be no sorrow there,
There’ll be no sorrow there,
In heaven above, where all is love,
There’ll be no sorrow there.

2 Shall I, unworthy I,
To fear and doubting given,
Mount up at last, and, happy, fly
On angel’s wings to heaven? [Refrain]

3 Hail, love divine and pure,
Hail, mercy from the skies!
My hopes are bright and now secure,
Upborne by faith I rise. [Refrain]
