1 .On for a firm and lively faith,
That may the grave defy,
And, trusting what the gospel saith,
Our feeble lips should sing,
A life that never ends-
And endless thanks be paid, Who makes us conquerors though we die, Through Christ our living Head.
On wings of faith and strong desire
Final Acceptance of all who fear God and nork
Righteousness.-Acts x. 35.
From north and south, from east and west,
Howe'er divided here below,
Nor sense nor reason known, What joys the Father hath prepard
For those that love the Son.
2 But the good spirit of the Lord
Reveals a heaven to come; The beams of glory in his word, Allure and guide us home.
Pollution, sin, and shame:
1 Those happy realms of joy and peace
Fain would my heart explore, Where grief and pain for ever cease, And I shall sin no more.
2 No darkness there shall cloud the eyes,
No languor seize the frame;
Extends its awful gloom: Fear spreads, to hide the distant scene, The horrors of the tomb.
4 Oh for the eye of faith divine,
To pierce beyond the grave! To see that Friend, and call him mine, Whose arm is strong to save!
5 Here fix, my soul! for life is here;
Light breaks amid the gloom : Trust in Jehovah's love, nor fear
The horrors of the tomb.
212. Prospect of Heaven.
1 Far from these narrow scenes of night,
Unbounded glories rise ; And realms of infinite delight, Unknown to mortal eyes.
2 There pain and sickness never come,
No bosom heaves a sigh, Health triumphs in immortal bloom, And pure is every joy.
3 No cloud those blissful regions know,
For ever bright and fair;
Nor sun's uncertain ray:
Our hearts with ardent love!
The Father hath bestow'd On creatures of a mortal race, To call them sons of God !
2 Nor doth it yet appear How great we must be made;
