Om en kort liten tid

Representative Text

1 Till det härliga land ofvan skyn
Vi i tron skåda upp redan här,
Ty ett hem, fast fördoldt för vår syn,
Har vår Jesus beredt åt oss där.

Kör:
Om en kort, liten tid
Ve få mötas på himmelens strand.
Om en kort, liten tid
Vi få mötas på himmelens strand.

2 Äfven vi på den ljufliga strand
Skola sjunga de saligas sång,
När, förlösta från dödliga band,
Vi vår Frälsare skåda en gång. [Kör]

3 För var älskade Fader och Gud
Vi vårt offer och tack lägga ner,
För den kärlek, han skänker sin brud,
Och den nåd, som han dagligen ger. [Kör]
