Representative Text

1 At set of sun when life is o’er,
And I on earth no longer dwell,
I shall not wander any more,
But be with Christ where all is well.

Refrain:
O Heav’n so bright, beyond life’s shore;
Some glad sweet day, I’m going o’er
To be at rest from sin’s despair,
And dwell forever in God’s care!

2 I wonder, as on faith I lean,
If I shall be a wretch undone,
And what eternity will mean,
When I must stand before God’s Son. [Refrain]

3 The Gospel light has led me through
The miry clay of shame and sin;
I’ll run my race with courage new,
Until a crown of life I win. [Refrain]
