Death, Resurrection, and Eternity

Image of tune Fiducia (may not be posted yet)

690 (C.M.) Anne Steele

Far from these narrow scenes of night

Unbounded glories rise,

And realms of joy and pure delight,

Unknown to mortal eyes.

Fair, distant land! could mortal eyes

But half its charms explore;

How would our spirits long to rise,

And dwell on earth no more!

No cloud those blissful regions know —

For ever bright and fair! —

For sin, the source of mortal woe,

Can never enter there.

Oh, may the heav'nly prospect fire

Our hearts with ardent love;

'Til wings of faith and strong desire

Bear ev'ry thought above!
