8.7.8.7.


1
WHERE thy saints in glory thronging,
Where they feed on life's blest Tree -
There is stilled each earnest longing,
Satisfied our souls shall be.
2
Safety - where no foe approaches;
Rest - where toil shall be no more;
Joy - whereon no grief encroaches;
Peace - where strife shall all be o'er:
3
Where deceiver ne'er can enter,
Sin-soiled feet have never trod;
Free, our peaceful feet may venture
In the paradise of God.
4
Drink of life's perennial river,
Feed on life's perennial food,
Christ, the fruit of life, and Giver -
Safe through His redeeming blood.
5
Object of eternal pleasure,
Perfect in Thy work divine!
Lord of glory! without measure
Worship, joy and praise are Thine.

J.N. Darby
