Representative Text

1 Who, O Lord, when life is o'er,
Shall to heaven's blest mansions soar?
Who, an ever-welcome guest,
In Thy holy place shall rest?

2 He whose heart Thy Love has warmed;
He whose will, to Thine conformed,
Bids his life unsullied run;
He whose word and though are one:

3 He who shuns the sinner's road,
Loving those who love their God;
Who, with hope and faith unfeigned,
Treads the path by Thee ordained;

4 He who trusts in Christ alone,
Not in aught himself has done;
He, great God, shall be Thy care,
And Thy choicest blessings share.
