SCORE PREVIEW

There is a world of perfect bliss,
Above the starry skies;
Fatigued with sorrows and with sins,
I thither lift my eyes.


Immortal crowns of purest gold
Do there for conquerors wait,
Honours immense and wealth untold,
And joys that ne’er abate.


Jesus, that never-setting man,
There spread his brightest rays;
And every heart and every tongue
Unite in rapturous praise.


‘Tis there the weary are at rest,
And all is peace within;
The mind with guilt no more oppressed,
The conscience calm and clean.


Discord and strife are banished thence,
Distrust and slavish fear;
No more we hear the pensive sigh,
Or see the falling tear.


Farewell to earth and earthly things,
In vain they tempt my stay;
Come angels, spread your downy wings,
And bear me swift away.


I long to see my Father’s face,
And love and sing like you;
Adieu, adieu, my dearest friends,
Vain world, once more adieu!
