Resurrection and Eternal Life.
Ye stars are but the shining dust
Of my divine abode, The pavement of those heavenly courts
Where I shall reign with God.
The Father of eternal light Shall there His beams display,
Nor shall one moment's darkness mix With that unvaried day.
No more the drops of piercing grief
Shall swell into mine eyes ; Nor the meridian sun decline
Amid those brighter skies.
There all the millions of His saints
Shall in one song unite, And each the bliss of all shall view
With infinite delight.
Philip Doddridge.
Far from these narrow scenes of night
Unbounded glories rise, And realms of infinite delight,
Unknown to mortal eyes.
Fair distant land ; could mortal eyes
But half its joys explore, How would our spirits long to rise,
And dwell on earth no more !
