Hymn 353 - "What will it be to dwell above


What will it be to dwell above,

And with Thee, Lord of glory, reign,

Since the blest knowledge of Thy love

So brightens all this dreary plain?

No heart can think, no tongue can tell,

What joy 'twill be with Thee to dwell.


When left this scene of faith and strife,

And flesh and sense deceive no more;

When we shall see Thee, Prince of life,

And all Thy works of grace explore;

What heights and depths of love divine

Will there through endless ages shine!


And God has fixed the happy day

When the last tear shall dim our eyes,

When He will wipe these tears away,

And fill our hearts with glad surprise;

To hear Thy voice and see Thy face,

And know the fulness of God's grace.
