Hymn/Song Information

Absent from flesh O blissful thought




Absent from flesh!
O blissful thought!
What unknown joys
this moment brings!
Freed from the mischiefs
sin has brought,
From pains, and fears,
and all their springs.


Absent from flesh! illustrious day!
Surprising scene! triumphant stroke
That rends the prison of my clay;
And I can feel my fetters broke.


Absent from flesh!
then rise, my soul,
Where feet nor wings
could never climb,
Beyond the heavíns,
where planets roll,
Measuring the cares and joys of time.


I go where God and glory shine,
His presence makes eternal day:
My all thatís mortal I resign,
For angels wait and point my way.
