PLEASURES UNSEEN




Oh, could our thoughts and wishes fly.
Above these gloomy shades,
To those bright worlds beyond the sky.
Which sorrow ne'er invades!


There joys, unseen by mortal eyes,
Or reason's feeble ray,
In ever blooming prospects rise,
Unconscious of decay.


Lord, send a beam of light divine,
To guide our upward aim!
With one reviving touch of thine.
Our languid hearts inflame.


Then shall, on faith's sublimest wing,
Our ardent wishes rise
To those bright scenes,where pleasures spring:
Immortal in the skies.


---Alternative verses---


Oh, could my thoughts and wishes fly. 
Above these gloomy shades, 
To those bright worlds beyond the sky. 
Which sorrow ne'er invades! 


Lord, send a beam of light divine,
To guide my upward aim!
With one reviving touch of thine.
My languid heart inflame.


Then shall, on faith's sublimest wing,
my ardent wishes rise
To those bright scenes,where pleasures spring:
Immortal in the skies.
