    Verse 1
    We speak of the realms of the Blest,
    Of that country so bright and so fair,
    And oft are its glories confessed;
    But what must it be to be there?

    Verse 2
    We speak of its pathways of gold,
    Of its walls decked with jewels most rare,
    Its wonders and pleasures untold;
    But what must it be to be there?

    Verse 3
    We speak of its freedom from sin,
    From sorrow, temptation, and care,
    From trials without and within;
    But what must it be to be there?

    Verse 4
    We speak of its anthems of praise,
    With which we can compare
    The sweetest on earth we can raise;
    But what must it be to be there?

    verse 5
    We speak of its service of love,
    Of the robes which the glorified wear,
    The church of the First-born above;
    But what must it be to be there?

    verse 6
    Do Thou, Lord, 'midst pleasure of woe,
    Still for Heaven our spirits prepare;
    And shortly we also shall know
    And feel what it is to be there.
