70*. We Sing of the Realms of the Blest

8s.
by Mrs. E. Mills, 1829
1
We sing of the realms of the blest,
 
That country so bright and so fair,
 
The glorious mansions of rest—
 
But what must it be to be there?
Hebrews 4:9
2
We tell of its service of love;
 
The robes which the glorified wear;
 
The church of the Firstborn above—
 
But what must it be to be there?
Revelation 7:9; Hebrews 12:23
3
We tell of its freedom from sin,
 
From sorrow, temptation and care,
 
From trials without and within—
 
But what must it be to be there?
Revelation 21:4
4
Do Thou, Lord, midst pleasure and woe,
 
Still for heaven our spirits prepare;
 
And shortly we also shall know
 
And feel what it is to be there.
“There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.” (Hebrews 4:9)
