Representative Text

1 Sometimes we sigh as days go by,
Looking on life’s varied story;
But only love we’ll sing above,
When we are with Him in glory.

When we are with Him in glory,
When we are with Him in glory,
Our hearts shall raise adoring praise,
When we are with Him in glory.

2 We’ll bless the Lord with glad accord,
Knowing “all things work together;”
Our risen King can blessing bring,
Stormy or sunshiny weather. [Refrain]

3 E’en here we trace His wondrous grace,
Mercies abundant and tender;
But how much more on that bright shore,
Jubilant anthems we’ll render. [Refrain]

4 We’ll now begin the heav’nly hymn,
Singing thro’ life’s varied story;
Thro’ good and ill, we’ll trust Him still,
Till we are with Him in glory. [Refrain]
