Representative Text

1 Are there no years in Heaven?
No change of day and night?
No rolling seasons’ varied hues
To mark time’s onward flight?

2 No: Time itself must fade,
And New Years’ Days shall cease,
When all God’s children meet on high,
To hail the Prince of Peace.

3 His realm is endless rest,
And perfect holiness!
No cares shall cloud, no sorrow dim
That home of loveliness.

4 In His great name we raise
Our New Year’s song to Heaven;
To praise our Father’s boundless love,
And ask to be forgiven.

5 Savior, be Thou our trust,
Our daily, hourly friend;
Unite our hearts in love to Thee—
The love which knows no end.

6 So may our lives on earth
Made happy by Thy grace,
Be foretastes of a fairer home—
A heavenly dwelling place.

Phillips, Philip, commonly known as the "Singing Pilgrim," was born in Chautauqua County, N. York, Aug. 13, 1834. Although engaged in farming for a time, from an early age he devoted himself to music, and ultimately devoted himself to the work of a "Singing Evangelist," in which capacity he has visited most English-speaking countries. His popular hymnals are: (1) Early Blossoms, 1860; (2) Musical Leaves, 1862; and (3) The Singing Pilgrim, 1866. In these works he published one or two hymns, including "I have heard of a Saviour's love" (The love of Christ), as in I. D. Sankey's Sacred Songs and Solos, 1878. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
