Representative Text

1 From north and south, from east and west,
Advance the myriads of the blest;
From ev'ry clime of earth the come,
And find in heav'n a common home.

2 Howe'er divided here below,
One bliss, one spirit now they know;
And, all their doubts and darkness o'er,
One common Parent now adore.

3 On earth, according to their light,
They strove to practise what was right;
Hence all their errors are forgiv'n,
And Jesus welcomes them to heav'n.

4 See, how along th' immortal meads
His glorious host the Saviour leads!
And brings the myriads none can count,
To seats of joy on Zion's mount!
