Lord, thou wilt bring the joyful day! - The coming glory
(Ray Palmer/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The coming glory.

"And there shall be no night there." (Revelation 22,5)

1. Lord, thou wilt bring the joyful day!
  beyond earth's weariness and pains,
thou hast a mansion far away,
  where for thine own a rest remains. (PDF - Midi)

2. No sun there climbs the morning sky,
  there never falls the shade of night,
God and the Lamb, for ever nigh,
  o'er all shed everlasting light.

3. The bow of mercy spans the throne,
  emblem of love and goodness there;
while notes to mortals all unknown
  float on the calm, celestial air.

4. Around the throne bright legions stand,
  redeemed by blood from sin and hell;
and shining forms, an angel band,
  the mighty chorus join to swell.

5. There, Lord, thy way-worn saints shall find
  the bliss for which thy longed before;
and holiest sympathies shall bind
  thine own to thee for evermore.

6. O Jesus, bring us to that rest,
  where all the ransomed shall be found,
in thine eternal fulness blessed,
  while ages roll their cycles round.

Ray Palmer, in: The Poetical Works of Ray Palmer, 1876, 23-24.
