THE CHRISTIAN'S PROSPECTS AND THE WORLD




All, all is vanity below,
An airy dream, an empty show:
What sinners value we resign;
Lord! ‘tis enough that we are thine.


All, all is vanity below;
But the bright world to which we go
Hath joys substantial and sincere;
When shall we wake and find Thee here.


O glorious hour! O blest abode!
We shall be near and like our God;
And flesh and sin no more control
The sacred pleasures of the soul.


Our flesh shall slumber in the ground,
Till the last trumpet’s joyful sound;
Then burst its chains with sweet surprise,
And in thy perfect image rise.
