Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Heaven

Ye souls that trust in Christ, rejoice

Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
