    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!
