64

S.M.


1
O BRIGHT and blessèd scenes,
Where sin can never come;
Whose sigh our longing spirit weans
From earth, where yet we roam.
2
And can we call our home
Our Father's house on high,
The rest of God our rest to come,
Our place of liberty?
3
Yes! in that light unstained
Our stainless souls shall live;
Our hearts' deep longings more than gained
When God His rest shall give.
4
His presence there, my soul
Its rest, its joy untold
Shall find, when endless ages roll,
And time shall ne'er grow old.
5
Like Jesus in that place
Of light and love supreme,
Once Man of sorrows, full of grace,
Heav'n's blest and endless theme.
6
O love supreme and bright,
Good to the feeblest heart,
That gives us now as heav'nly light
What soon shall be our part!
