The people of the Lord
Are on their way to heav'n;
They there obtain their great reward,
The prize will there be giv'n.
'Tis conflict here below,
'Tis triumph there, and peace,;
On earth we wrestle with the foe,
In heav'n our conflicts cease.
'Tis gloom and darkness here,
'Tis light and joy above;
There all is pure and all is clear,
There all is peace and love.
There rest shall follow toil,
And ease succeed to care;
The victors there divide the spoil,
They sing and triumph there.
Then let us joyful sing,
The conflict is not long;
We know in heav'n we'll praise our King
In one eternal song.
