1 Ye souls that trust in Christ, rejoice,
Your sins are all forgiven;
Let every Christian raise his voice,
And sing the joys of heaven.
2 Heaven is that holy happy place,
Where sin no more defiles;
Where God unveils his lovely face,
And looks, and loves, and smiles.
3 Where Jesus, Son of Man and God,
Triumphant from his wars,
Walks in rich garments dipped in blood,
And shews his glorious scars.
4 Where ransomed sinners sound God's praise,
Th' angelic hosts among,
Sing the rich wonders of his grace,
And Jesus leads the song.
5 Where saints are free from every load
Of passions or of pains,
God dwells in them, and they in God,
And love for ever reigns.
6 Eye hath not seen, nor ear hath heard,
Nor can the heart conceive,
All that the blood of Christ procured,
Or all that God can give.
7 Lord as thou show'st thy glory there;
Make known thy grace to us,
And heaven will not be wanting here,
While we can hymn thee thus.
