Oh Scenes of Heavenly Joy! (words only)
Oh scenes of heavenly joy! The Father’s house above,
Where cloudless peace without alloy, Fills all that home of love.
There glory bright and fair, Shines with celestial beam;
For He who suffered once is there, It’s center and its theme.
The Father’s full delight Is centered in the Son,
And countless tongues in heav’n unite To tell what He hath done.
The Lamb enthroned shall there Engage each raptured heart,
While myriad saints Christ’s likeness bear And have with Him their part.
‘Tis He who made us meet With saints in light to dwell;
And now we chant His praises sweet, Whose love we know so well.
E’en now we taste the love, And know the mighty pow’r,
By which we’ll rise to realms above When waiting time is o’er.
