Hymn/Song Information

Soon and forever such promise our trust Though




Soon and forever, such promise our trust,
Though ashes to ashes, and dust unto dust;
Soon and forever, our union shall be
Made perfect, our glorious Redeemer, in Thee:


When the sins and the sorrows of time shall be oer,
Its pangs and its partings remembered no more;
Where life cannot fail, and where death cannot sever,
Christians with Christ shall be soon and forever.


Soon and forever, the breaking of day
Shall drive all the night clouds of sorrow away;
Soon and forever, we ll see as were seen,
And learn the deep meaning of things that have been:


When fightings without us, and fears from within,
Shall weary no more in the warfare oi sin;
Where tears, and where fears, and where death shall be never,
Christians with Christ. shall be soon and forever.


Soon and forever the work shall be done,
The warfare accomplished. the victory won;
Soon and forever the soldier lay down
His sword for a harp, and his cross for a crown.


Then droop not in sorrow. despond not in fear,
A glorious to-morrow is brightening and near;
When, blessed reward of each faithful endeavor,
Christians with Christ shall be soon and forever.
