965—For ever with the Lord
For ever with the Lord!
Amen; so let it be:
Life from the dead is in that word,
‘Tis immortality.
Here in the body pent,
Absent from Him I roam,
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent
A day’s march nearer to home.
My Father’s house on high,
Home of my soul, how near,
At times, to faith’s foreseeing eye,
Thy golden gates appear!
Ah! Then my spirit faints.
To reach the land I love,
The bright inheritance of saints,
Jerusalem above.
Yet clouds will intervene
And al my prospect flies
Like Noah’s dove I flit between
Rough seas and stormy skies
Anon the clouds depart
The winds and waters cease
While sweetly o’er my gladden’d heart
Expands the bow of peace.
I hear at morn and even
At noon and midnight hour
The choral harmonies of heav’n
Earth’s babel – tongues o’erpow’
That resurrection Word,
That shout of victory;
Once more, For ever with the Lord
Amen; so let it be.
