OOK upon us Sinners, Lord,

And thoughts of Love conceive,

And give us Peace for evermore.

WHEN I behold the heav’nly state;

The rest that doth the Saints await,
How full of Comfort is my Soul,
What streams of Bliss around me roll.
Above the World by Faith we rise,
And taste the Joys above the Skies,
With Angels feast, with Angels join,
In Hymns immortal and divine,
While we enjoy this blissful Sight,
Our Souls o'erflow with sweet Delight;
We long to reach th'eternal Shore,
And see this evil World no more..

O for the beatifick Day,
When we shall-fing our Souls away :
Then Pain and Sin for ever cease,
And Joys eternally increase.

What heaps of Joy, what worlds of Bliss The Lord for them prepares ! Their boundless Treasures who can know, For all above, and all below,

And God, and Christ, is theirs.

They are adopted Sons and Heirs

Of God, thro' Grace divine :
Their Sins are pardon'd in his Blood,
And with his Righteousness endow'd,

How glorious do they shine.
God is their own, and God is Love,
And they have all in Heav'n above,

What can they covet more?
Or what can true Believers want,
Why are they Discontent or Faint,

They have an endless Store.

And Chrift, who did the World redeem,

And thee, the Holy Ghost ::
In Essence one, in Persons three,
Immortal Praise and Glory be,

By all the heav'nly Hoft.
