The soul hath a hope

Representative Text

1 The soul hath a hope ever dear,
Of life in a clime of beautiful sheen;
Where ne’er come the storm-clouds of fear,
Where shadows of gloom shall never be seen;

Where shadows of gloom shall never be seen,
Where shadows of gloom shall never be seen;
Oh, life’s immortal years!
In a clime where flow no tears—
Where shadows of gloom shall never be seen.

2 Sweet hope of the life ever blest
With God in his home, with Jesus above;
Where angels and saints are at rest,
Where heavenly joys are raptures of love;

Where heavenly joys are raptures of love,
Where heavenly joys are raptures of love;
Oh, life’s immortal years!
In a clime where flow no tears—
Where heavenly joys are raptures of love.

3 Dear hope of the soul’s better life—
An ocean of Peace—sweet Purity’s sea!
Where never is tempest or strife,
Where pleasures are holy, boundless, and free;

Where pleasures are holy, boundless, and free,
Where pleasures are holy, boundless, and free;
Oh, life’s immortal years!
In a clime where flow no tears—
Where pleasures are holy, boundless, and free.

4 Oh, soul, keep thy hope ever pure,
Of life in the clime of virtue and truth;
Where visions of glory endure,
Wherever abides the beauty of youth;

Wherever abides the beauty of youth,
Wherever abides the beauty of youth;
Oh, life’s immortal years!
In a clime where flow no tears—
Wherever abides the beauty of youth.
