Representative Text

1 Tranquil and peaceful is the path of heaven,
Where now so many, fresh from earth's ripe vintage
So many happy, high and blessed spirits
Wait to receive us.

2 There life is blissful! shall the spirit tremble?
Bright, heavenly angels wait to lead us yonder;
There dwell the spirits purified by suffering,
Blessing and blessed.

3 There our lost rose-buds in our hands shall open;
Love, pure and holy, in our bosoms glowing,
Flows from the Father, source of every blessing,
Living and loving.
