How happy every child of grace
Who knows his sins forgiven!
This earth, he cries, is not my place,
I seek my place in heaven:
A country far from mortal sight;
Yet, O! By faith I see
The land of rest, the saints’ delight,
The heaven prepar’d for me.
See also ALIDA'S TUNE, which is very similar in the first phrases, but then diverges somewhat from ALIDA.
