Desire of Heaven


When I am taken from this world of sadness,
With what joy I'll seek the skies!
Jesus I'll hasten to thine arms with gladness,
Heav'n is all I seek or prize.

Blest abode, fair Sion loved and cherished,
When earthly joys have faded and perished,
Oh let me Thy splendors behold,
Then let me taste thy joys untold;
Then let me taste thy joys untold,
Then let me taste thy joys untold.

Quickly depart! oh cruel momments hasten!
Shall mine exile ne'er have end?
When shall these sorrows cease my heart to chasten?
Jesus soon Thy summons send.

Blest abode, fair Sion loved and cherished,
When earthly joys have faded and perished,
Oh let me Thy splendors behold,
Then let me taste thy joys untold;
Then let me taste thy joys untold,
Then let me taste thy joys untold.

Heaven has no sadness, sorrow or sighing,
There I'll mourn and weep no more;
There is no grief, no sickness or dying
On that bright unfading shore.

Blest abode, fair Sion loved and cherished,
When earthly joys have faded and perished,
Oh let me Thy splendors behold,
Then let me taste thy joys untold;
Then let me taste thy joys untold,
Then let me taste thy joys untold.

Ever more I hear their angel voices pealing,
From my soul soft echoes rise;
Brightly around me dreams of bliss are stealing
Of my home beyond the skies.

Blest abode, fair Sion loved and cherished,
When earthly joys have faded and perished,
Oh let me Thy splendors behold,
Then let me taste thy joys untold;
Then let me taste thy joys untold,
Then let me taste thy joys untold.
