Representative Text

1 ’Tis but a veil that hangs between
The unseen world and this,
And hides from view the sainted forms,
The world of perfect bliss.

Refrain:
When the veil is lifted,
In the by and by,
Scenes of wondrous beauty
Will greet the raptured eye;
Forms of cherished loved ones,
Hosts of angels bright,
When the veil is lifted,
Will dawn upon our sight.

2 To calm the servant’s needless fears,
God drew this veil aside;
When all about Elisha, lo!
A mighty host he spied. [Refrain]

3 Departing saints such scenes behold,
As in death’s arms they sink;
May Heaven not be near us now?
E’en nearer than we think? [Refrain]
