WHEN I can read my title clear

To mansions in the skies,

I'll bid farewell to every fear,

And wipe my weeping eyes.

Should earth against my soul engage,

And fiery darts be hurled,

Then I can smile at Satan's rage,

And face a frowning world.

Let cares, like a wild deluge come,

And storms of sorrow fall,

May I but safely reach my home,

My God, my heaven, my all.

There shall I bathe my weary soul

In sons of heavenly rest,

And not a wave of trouble roll

Across my peaceful breast.
