THERE is a glorious mansion,

A happy home above,

Beyond the starry regions,

Built by the God we love;

An everlasting temple,

Where saints arrayed in white,

Adore their great Redeemer,

And dwell with him in light.

It is no world of trouble,

The God of peace is there,

He wipes away their sorrows,

And banishes their care;

Their joys are still increasing,

Their songs are ever new,

They praise th' eternal Father

And praise the Saviour too.

The weakest child in glory 

Outshines the radiant sun;

But who can speak the splendor,

Of that eternal throne,

Where Jesus sits exalted,

In godlike majesty?

The elders fall before him,

The angels bend the knee.

Is this the man of sorrows,

Who stood at Pilate's bar,

Contemned by haughty Herod,

And by his men of war?

He seems a mighty conqu'ror,

Who spoiled the powers below,

And ransomed many captives

From everlasting wo.

The hosts of saints around him

Proclaim his work of grace;

The patriarchs and prophets,

And all the godly race;

Who speak of fiery trials,

And tortures on their way;

They came from tribulation,

To everlasting day.
