Representative Text

1 This world is bright and fair, we know;
The skies are arched in glory;
The stars shine on, the sweet flowr’s blow,
And tell their blessed story.

2 But softer than the summer’s breath,
And fairer than its roses,
Will be the clime afar, when death
The pearly gate uncloses;

3 The land where broken ties shall twine,
And fond hearts will not sever,
Where love’s pure light shall brighter shine,
Forever and forever!
