High, in the Father's house above,
 
Our mansion is prepared;
 
There is the home, the rest we love,
 
And there our bright reward.
John 14:1-3; Revelation 14:13; Colossians 3:24

With Him we love, in spotless white,
 
In glory we shall shine;
 
His blissful presence our delight,
 
In love and joy divine.
Revelation 3:4; Matthew 13:43; Psalm 16:11; Jude 1:24

All taint of sin shall be removed,
 
All evil done away:
 
And we shall dwell with God's Beloved,
 
Through God's eternal day.
