Representative Text

1 My soul is uplifted with rapture untold,
Tho’ oft I am tempted and tried;
I think of a dwelling not made with hands,
Where pleasures forever abide.

I’m bound for a home in the skies,
O glory to Jesus my King;
The songs of the millions redeemed by his grace,
Forever and ever I’ll sing.

2 My faith in my Savior grows stronger each day,
I trust him but never repine;
In tranquil submission my heart can say,
The will of my Father be mine. [Refrain]

3 I trust him in sorrow, I trust him in joy,
I’ll trust him, as long as I live;
For numberless blessings that crown me still,
All honor and praise will I give. [Refrain]

4 And when I shall enter the portals of light,
Where Jesus my Lord I shall see,
I’ll tell of the mercy and wondrous love
That promised a ransom for me. [Refrain]
