501. Away with our sorrow and fear
Away with our sorrow and fear !
We soon shall have ent’red our home,
The heavenly city appear,
The day of our glory have come ;
From earth we shall quickly remove
To dwell in our proper abode,
In mansions of glory above —
The house of our Father and God.
With Christ everlastingly one,
His glory and bliss we shall see ;
His face shall be bright as the sun,
And we His reflection shall be.
All tears shall have passed from our eyes,
When Him we behold in the cloud,
And taste the full joy of the skies,
The love of our Father and God.
