Fine.

1259. 6s.

2. Oh for thy fragrant flowers,

That bloom through all the year!
Oh for thy rosy bowers,

The wilderness to cheer!
To thee we shall return,

And to Mount Zion come!
With songs sing joyfully,

And shout the harvest home!
Awake the harp and lute,

In praises to the King
Who reigns on David's throne,
To Him hosannas bring!

3. Jesus shall ever reign!

When His bright kingdom comes
The sun shall be ashamed

Before His dazzling thrones!
The moon confounded, then,

Shall hide her silver ray,
And saints of every age,

Rejoice in glorious day!
Oh, exiled Paradise,

Oh, how we long for thee!

glittering fountains play, And sweet sequestered dales Hid in thy groves a-way!

Their bright and holy rest.

He seems a mighty conqueror,
Who spoiled the powers below,
And ransomed many captives
From everlasting woe!

4. The hosts of saints around Him
Proclaim His work of grace;
The patriarchs and prophets,

And all the godly race,
Who speak of fiery trials

And tortures on their way-
They came from tribulation
To everlasting day.

5. And what shall be my journey,
How long I'll stay below,
Or what shall be my trials,

Are not for me to know;
In every day of trouble,

I'll raise my thoughts on high;
I'll think of the bright temple,
And crowns above the sky.

2. While angelic legions, with harps tuned celestial,
Harmoniously join in the concert of praise,
The saints as they flock from the regions terrestrial,
In loud hallelujahs their voices will raise;
Then songs to the Lamb shall re-echo thro' heaven,
My soul will respond. To Immanuel be given
All glory, all honor, all might and dominion,

Who brought us thro' grace to the Eden of Love.

3. Then hail, blessed state! hail, ye songsters of glory!
Ye harpers of bliss, soon I'll meet you above!
And join your full choir in rehearsing the story,

"Salvation from sorrow, through Jesus's love;"
Though 'prisoned in earth, yet by anticipation,
Already my soul feels a sweet prelibation
Of joys that await me, when freed from probation;
My heart's now in Heaven, the Eden of Love.
