Representative 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]
