Hymn Selection



O BRIGHT and blessèd scenes,
Where sin can never come;
Whose sigh our longing spirit weans
From earth, where yet we roam.
And can we call our home
Our Father's house on high,
The rest of God our rest to come,
Our place of liberty?
Yes! in that light unstained
Our stainless souls shall live;
Our hearts' deep longings more than gained
When God His rest shall give.
His presence there, my soul
Its rest, its joy untold
Shall find, when endless ages roll,
And time shall ne'er grow old.
Like Jesus in that place
Of light and love supreme,
Once Man of sorrows, full of grace,
Heav'n's blest and endless theme.
O love supreme and bright,
Good to the feeblest heart,
That gives us now as heav'nly light
What soon shall be our part!

J.N. Darby
