Representative Text

1 Peace, all ye sorrows of the heart,
And all my tears be dry:
That Christian's courage ne'er can sink,
Who views his Lord on high.

2 "I live forever, (Jesus saith)
And you with me shall live;
Receive with pleasure ev'ry pledge
My pow'r and love can give.

3 "Fair mansions in my Father's house
For all his children wait;
And I, your elder brother, go
To open wide the gate.

4 "United in eternal love,
My followers shall remain;
And with rejoicing hearts shall share
The honors of my reign."

5 Yes, Lord, thy gracious words we hear,
And cordial joys they bring.
Frail nature may extort a groan,
But faith thy name shall sing.
