Ever gladness, never sadness - The eternal pendulum: ever, never (Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The eternal pendulum: ever, never.

1. “Ever gladness, never sadness,”
  speaks the pendulum of heaven,
softly swinging, gently beating,
  endless joy of the forgiven!
    Sweetest music – ever, never –
      ever bliss, but never woe;
    sweetest beatings – ever, never –
      swaying softly to and fro. (PDF - Midi)

2. Ever sunshine, never shadow,
  calm, mild, clear, celestial day:
ever summer, never winter;
  naught of drooping or decay!
    Sweetest music – ever, never –
      ever bliss, but never woe;
    sweetest beatings – ever, never –
      swaying softly to and fro.

3. Ever gazing, ever praising,
  with the angel hosts above;
one eternal Hallelujah,
  one unending song of love!
    Sweetest music – ever, never –
      ever bliss, but never woe;
    sweetest beatings – ever, never –
      swaying softly to and fro.

4. Never sighing, never sinning;
  no distrust, nor doubt, nor fear,
through the ages of the ages,
  through the long eternal year!
    Sweetest music – ever, never –
      ever bliss, but never woe;
    sweetest beatings – ever, never –
      swaying softly to and fro.

1881.
