565. C. H. M. Sacred Lyrics. The Everlasting Bliss of Heaven.
1 Heaven is the land where troubles cease,
Where toils and tears are o'er; --
The blissful clime of rest and peace,
Where cares distract no more;
And not the shadow of distress
Dims its unsullied blessedness.
2 Heaven is the dwelling-place of joy,
The home of light and love,
Where faith and hope in rapture die,
And ransomed souls above
Enjoy, before th' eternal throne,
Bliss everlasting and unknown.
