4 From pain and sorrow free
Are all who dwell therein ;
Far from the reach of sin.
Spend an unending day ;
All gloominess away.
And desert life shall cease,
Ånd conflict change for peace !
L.M. 1 It hath not fully yet appeared
What blessedness to saints is given;
eye hath seen, nor ear hath heard, Nor heart conceived, the joys of heaven. 2 In heaven itself, and there alone,
The joys of heaven are understood ;
And shall behold the face of God. 3 A sight of Him His people fills
With transports never known before ;
And sin and sorrow are no more.
Where sorrow is unknown;
Formed for the saints alone.
2 There gates of pearl, and streets of gold,
Will meet their wondering sight;
Will fill them with delight.
All tears are wiped away ;
Through one eternal day.
Their toils and troubles o'er;
Are joined to part no more. 327 Children in Heaven.
C.M. 1 YES ; there are little ones in heaven,
Who once were here below;
Their souls release from woe.
Who washed them from their sin ; They sing His free unbounded grace,
Which took young children in. 3 They needed cleansing in His blood —
The Lamb on Calvary slain ; Nor young nor old can go to God
Unless they're born again. 328
A land of love ;
In heaven above :
There shine Immanuel's rays
And feel His love.
At His right hand,
A ransomed band :
In that fair land.
They sing His grace ;
They sought His face :
'In that bright place!
Thy love divine !
In heaven with Thine !
Jesus, be mine!
C.M. 1 HEAVEN is a holy, happy place,
Where saints and angels dwell ;
They see with joy their Maker's face,
They love His service well.
Each other's bliss to share ;
Not one is silent there. 3 They praise the Lord, their heavenly King,
In many a holy strain ;
The Lanıb for sinners slain. 330
Rev. vii. 9-17. 7's double. 1 Who are those in bright array,
This innumerable throng,
New dominion every hour.'
These through great afflictions came;
More than conquerors they stand. 3 They, before diseased, unknown,
On immortal fruits now feed;
Joy and gladness banish sighs ;
God shall wipe away all tears.
Thousands of children stand ; Children whose sins are all forgiven, A holy, happy band,
Singing, Glory, glory, glory! 2 What brought them to that world above,
That heaven so bright and fair, · Where all is peace, and joy, and love ? How came those children there?
To wash away their sin ;
Singing, etc. 4 On earth they sought their Saviour's grace,
On earth they loved His name ; And now they see His blessèd face, And stand before the Lamb;
Singing, etc. 332 Praise of Heaven. 1 THERE is a glorious world of light
Above the starry sky, Where saints departed, clothed in white,
Adore the Lord most high.
