FAR from these narrow scenes of night,

Unbounded glories rise;

And realms of infinite delight,

Unseen by mortal eyes.

Celestial land! could our weak eyes

But half its charms explore,

How would our spirits long to rise

And dwell on earth no more!

There pain and sickness never come,

And grief no place obtains;

Health triumphs in immortal bloom,

And endless pleasure reigns.

No cloud those blissful regions know,

Forever bright and fair!

For sin, the source of every woe,

Can never enter there.

There no alternate night is known,

Nor sun's faint sickly ray;

But glory from the sacred throne,

Spreads everlasting day.
