Christ My Song - 917
There is a place of endless joy - Heaven
(James George Deck/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
1. There is a place of endless joy
prepared for saints above;
of peace and bliss without alloy,
a home of perfect love.
It was for this that Jesus died,
that we with him might there abide:
it was for this he suffered pain,
that all his saints with him might reign. PDF - Midi
2. How bright, how holy is the place,
where God unveils his gracious face
on every blood-bought child!
They round the throne triumphant stand,
a golden harp in every hand,
to which they sing the ceaseless strain,
"Worthy the Lamb for sinners slain!"
3. Oh, wondrous grace! Oh, love divine,
to give us such a home!
Let us the present things resign,
and seek this rest to come;
and, gazing on our Saviour's cross,
esteem all else but worthless dross;
press forward, till the race be run;
fight, till the crown of life be won.
James George Deck, Hymns and Sacred Poems, 1906, 28-29.
