Hymn/Song Information

FREEDOM FROM SIN AND SORROW




In heaven the heart o’erflows with love,
And every eye behold its God;
The passions now no longer rove,
The souls is washed in Jesus’ blood.


Sin is for ever banished thence,
Extatic raptures fill the mind;
The low delights of flesh and sense
Are changed for pleasures all refined.


Oceans of bliss incessant roll,
Nor Satan tempts, nor tyrants frown;
No transient clouds o’erspread the soul
And guilt and grief are never known.


Oh could we drop his cumbrous clay,
Soon would we climb the upper road;
On wings of love fly swift away,
Till we shall reach the throne of God.
