HEAVEN ON EARTH




Happy the church, delightful place,
Where Jesus loves to dwell;
There he displays his wondrous grace,
And saints his glories tell.


Happy the heart where Jesus reigns,
With kind and gentle sway,
Where sweetly he the will constrains,
To love and to obey.


Thrice happy spirits round the throne,
Secure in his embrace;
Who make his brighter glories known,
And see him face to face.


‘Tis heaven on earth, though through a glass,
To view our absent Lord;
But to behold him as he is,
Will greater joy afford.
