The roseate hues of early dawn the




The roseate hues of early dawn,
the brightness of the day,
The crimson of the sunset sky,
how fast they fade away!
O for the pearly gates of Heavín!
O for the golden floor!
O for the Sun of Righteousness
that setteth nevermore!


The highest hopes we cherish here,
how fast they tire and faint!
How many a spot defiles the robe
that wraps an earthly saint!
O for a heart that never sins!
O for a soul washed white!
O for a voice to praise our King,
nor weary day or night!


Here faith is ours, and heavenly hopes, and grace to lead us higher;
But there are perfectness and peace
beyond our best desire.
O by Thy love and anguish, Lord,
O by Thy life laid down,
Grant that we fall not from Thy grace,
nor cast away our crown!
