LIFE EVERLASTING
523
2   There grief is turned to pleasure;
Such pleasure as below No human voice can utter,
No human heart can know; And after fleshly weakness,
And after this world's night, And after storm and whirlwind,
Are calm, and joy, and light.
3  And now we fight the battle,
But then shall wear the crown Of full and everlasting
And passionless renown; And He Whom now we trust in,
Shall then be seen and known, And they that know and see Him,
Shall have Him for their own.
4  The morning shall awaken,
The shadows flee away, And each true-hearted servant
Shall shine as doth the day; For God our King and portion,
In fulness of His grace, We then shall see for ever,
And worship face to face.
5   O sweet and bless&d country,
The home of God's elect! O sweet and blessSd country
That eager hearts expect! Jesus, in mercy bring us
To that dear land of rest; Who art, with God the Father,
And Spirit, ever blest.
Bernard of Cluny, 1145. Tr. J. M. Neale, 185
