Representative Text

1 There’s a region above,
Free from sin and temptation,
And a mansion of love
For each heir of salvation.
Then dismiss all thy fears,
Weary pilgrim of sorrow;
Tho' thy sun set in tears,
'Twill rise brighter tomorrow.

2 There our toils will be done,
And free grace be our story;
God himself be our sun,
And our unsetting glory.
In that world of delight,
Spring shall never be ended;
Nor shall shadows nor night
With its brightness be blended.
