Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1. If while we live ’mid sin below,
We would in Christ abide,
Thro’ faith this secret we should know:
Live on the glory side.

There’s glory on the glory side,
With Christ once crucified,
By faith I rise thro’ cloudy skies:
I’m on the glory side.

2. Ofttimes the sky seems hung with shrouds,
Which Jesus’ face would hide;
We’ll push our way above the clouds,
Up to the glory side. [Refrain]

3. The heavy fogs of doubt and fear,
The mists of human pride,
Cannot obscure Christ’s presence near,
His is the glory side. [Refrain]

4. However dark the clouds o’ercast
The starry azure wide,
I’ll gain the heights of Heav’n at last,
Safe on the glory side. [Refrain]
