1 - فوقَ أطباقِ الغَمامْ
مسكَنُ الأبرارْ
حيث قد سادَ الهَنا والسلامْ
شقَّ أستارَ الدُّجى
ذلِك المُختارْ
جالياً عنا دياجي الظلامْ

في السماءِ لا غيومْ
لا كروبٌ لا ولا همومْ
وجهُ ذياك الودودْ
بهجةُ الخلودْ
نورُهُ للدهرِ باهٍ يدومْ

2 - بانتظاري في العُلى
زمرةُ الخُلانْ
فلقد نالوا الفدى والنجاهْ
حيث جناتِ السما
تُبهِجُ السُّكانْ
ولهم تحلو ثمارُ الحياهْ

3 - يا لها مدينةً
زانها الجلالْ
إذ يسوعُ فوقَ عرشِ البهاءْ
أرضُها من ذهبٍ
دورُها لآلْ
ماؤها الزلالُ يُروي الظماءْ

Alwood, Josiah Kelley. (Harrison County, Ohio, July 15, 1828--January 13, 1909, Morenci, Michigan). Ordained by the United Brethren in Christ, he spent many years as a circuit rider, traveling on horseback to his many appointments. He would be gone from his family for weeks at a time while he held revival meetings and lectured on Christian doctrine. Later, he became a presiding elder in the North Ohio Conference and was a delegate to several general conferences of his church. Always a staunch supporter of the original constitution of his denomination, he was a delegate to the general conference at the time of the separation of the church into two groups at York, Pennsylvania, in 1889. --William J.
