Representative Text

1 How oft our souls are lifted up,
When clouds are dark and drear,
For Jesus comes, and kindly speaks
These loving words of cheer.

“In my Father’s house are many mansions;
If it were not so I would have told you;
In my Father’s house are many mansions,
I go to prepare a place for you!”

2 How oft amid our daily toil,
With anxious care oppressed,
We hear again the precious word
That tells of joy and rest: [Refrain]

3 Oh, may our faith in Him be strong,
Who feels our ev’ry care.
And will for us— as He hath said—
A place in heav’n prepare! [Refrain]

4 Then let us work, and watch, and pray,
Relying on the love
Of Him who now prepares a place
For us in heav’n above. [Refrain]
