That Blest Abode

Ah, that blest abode above,
Who shall pass its portals?
Who at length in peace and love
Dwell with the immortals?
They who battle for the right
When the day is longest
They who conquer in the fight
When the foe is strongest

Who shall nearest to the throne
have a place appointed?
Who have greatest favour shown
by the Lord’s anointed?

They who serve Him gladly now
Ring and Captain royal
Ever mindful of their vow, noble steadfast, loyal

Ah, the bliss of heav’ns abode, rise, my soul to win it!
Shrink not from the weary road, but in faith begin it
List’n not to the call of sense, earth is vain and lying
Yonder is thy recompense

‘Mid a bliss undying (3x)
