COME, LET US GO TO HEAVEN. • 321
Beyond the.storms and clouds of earthly care, To a sweet clime most beautiful and fair, Whera shines a cloudless day.
Then let us fix the eye of faith above, And while we triumph in a Saviour's love,
Prepare for that bright shore ; Where friends, long parted on the coast of time, Shall meet and mingle in a strain sublime,
And sigh " Farewell" no more.
COME, LET US GO TO HEAVEN. Come, let us go to heaven:—this home of ours Is lash'd by rough waves dashing 'gainst the shore; Here frosts of autumn chill the summer flowers.
And here the stormy tempests fiercely roar! Come, let us haste—'tis time we were away, These threat'ning clouds forbid a longer stay.
Come, let us go to heaven:—our pathway lies Close by the Cross, a lowly, narrow way,
Yet lighted up with glory from the skies, 'Tis radiant with a full, eternal day!
0 ! let us seek at once this narrow path,
Safe from the winds of woe, the storms of wrath.
Come, let us go to heaven:—it is a land More beautiful than ever met the sight— 21
