Hymn/Song Information

There is a dwelling place above Thither




There is a dwelling-place above;
Thither, to meet the God of love,
The poor in spirit go ;
There is a paradise of rest;
For contrite hearts and souls distrest
Its streams of comfort flow.


There is a goodly heritage,
Where earthly passions cease to rage;
The meek that haven gain:
There is a board, where they who pine,
Hungry, athirst, for grace divine,
May feast, nor crave again.


There is a voice to mercy true ;
To them who mercy's path pursue
That voice shall bliss impart ;
There is a sight from man concealed;
That sight, the face of God revealed ;
Shall bless the pure in heart.


There is a name, in heaven bestow'd ;
That name, which hails them sons of God,
The friends of peace shall know :
There is a kingdom in the sky,
Where they shall reign with God on high,
Who serve Him best below.


Lord ! be it mine like them to choose
The better part, like them to use
The means Thy love hath given !
Be holiness my aim on earth,
That death be welcomed as a birth
To life and bliss in Heaven !
