Representative Text

1 For those we love within the veil,
Who once were comrades of our way,
We thank thee, Lord; for they have won
To cloudless day.

2 And life for them is life indeed,
The splendid goal of earth’s strait race;
And where no shadows intervene
They see thy face.

3 Free from the fret of mortal years,
And knowing now thy perfect will,
With quickened sense and heightened joy
They serve thee still.

4 O fuller, sweeter is that life,
And larger, ampler is the air;
Eye cannot see nor heart conceive
The glory there!

5 There are no tears within their eyes;
With love they keep perpetual tryst;
And praise and work and rest are one
With thee, O Christ.
