Soon shall I quit this mortal shore,
And Jesus stand my friend.
My nights of grief shall all be o'er.
And all my labors end,

Then shall I reach the realms of bliss,
Where my beloved reigns,
Then I shall dwell where Jesus is,
And sing immortal strains.

There I shall drink unmingled joy,
From streams of love divine;
No passing clouds for to annoy
Where God in glory shines.

O what immortal scenes of bliss
Will bear my soul away!
How sweet the realms of joy and peace
In uncreated day!
