Where Jesus is there is no night,
All darkness flees away;
His presence sheds a holy light,
And brings eternal day.
“Where I am there ye may be also;”
List to the promise of love;
Jesus, our Master, gives the assurance,
We shall be with Him above.
I long to reach that heav’nly rest,
The victor’s crown to win;
To lay my head on Jesus’ breast,
Forever free from sin.
That rest belongs to weary souls,
That freedom must be won;
The Savior’s loving arm enfolds
His faithful ones alone.
Then let me work that rest to gain,
That freedom let me win,
And faithful to my Lord remain,
Till Christ says “Enter in.”
