THE HEAVENLY MANSIONS




When faith lifts up her piercing eyes,
And looks within the veil;
Where there are streams which ever flow,
And springs that never fail.


Where every want shall be supplied,
And every fear suppressed;
My active soul expands her wings,
And longs to be at rest.


Fain would I reach that distant land
Of light, and bliss, and love;
And go from praying saints below,
To praising saints above.


Blessed Jesus, who art gone before,
Those mansions to provide;
Through subs and sorrows, fears and foes,
Be now my guard and guide.


Removed from hence, upon thy head
Iíll ever place the crown;
And in harmonious accents tell,
The wonders thou hast done.
