Hymn/Song Information

Heaven is a state of rest from sin But all who




Heaven is a place of rest from sin;
But all who hope to enter there,
Must here that holy course begin,
Which shall their souls for rest prepare.


Clean hearts, O God! in us create,
Right spirits, Lord, in us renew;
Commence we now that higher state,
Now do thy will as angels do.


A life in heaven!—O what is this?
The sum of all that faith believed;
Fullness of joy, and depths of bliss,
Unseen, unfathomed, unconceived.


While thrones, dominions, princedoms, powers,
And saints made perfect, triumph thus,
A goodly heritage is ours,
There is a heaven on earth for us.


The church of Christ, the school of grace,
The Spirit teaching by the word;
In those our Saviour’s steps we trace,
By this his living voice is heard.


Firm in his footsteps may we tread,
Learn every lesson of his love;
And be from grace to glory led,
From heaven below to heaven above.

But all who hope to enter there,
Must here that holy course begin,
Which shall their souls for rest prepare.


In Jesus' footsteps may we tread,
Learn every lesson of his love;
And be from grace to glory led,
From heaven below to heaven above.
