93 THE rose is sweet, but it is sur | rounded with

thorns ; The lily of the valley is fragrant, but it springeth 1 up

the beauty there of. The rainbow is very glorious, but it soon vanish | eth

ļa / way; Life is good, but it is quickly / swallowed | up in

death. There is a land where the roses are with | out | thorns, Where the flowers | are not / mixed with | brambles. In that land there is eternal spring, And light with out any cloud. The tree of life groweth in the midst there of: Rivers of pleasure are there, and I flowers that |

never | fade. Myriads of happy / spirits are there, And surround the throne of God with a per i pe

tual hymn. The angels with their golden harps sing | praises

continually, And the cherubim | fly on | wings of fire. This country is | Heaven : it is the country of those that are I good; And nothing that is wicked Must | • in | habit | there. The toad “ust not spit its venom among | lurtle

doves ; Nor the poisɔnous henbane / grow a / mongst sweet!

flowers:

Neither must any one that doethill,
Enter into that good land.
This earth is pleasant, for it is God's earth,
And it is filled with | many de | lightful | things.
But that country is | far better;
There we shall not grieve any more, nor be sick any

more, nor do I wrong i any | more.
There the cold of winter | shall not | wither us,
Nor the heats of summer | scorch us.
In that country there are no i wars or | quarrels,
But all love one another with dear | love.
When our parents and friends die, we see them i

here no | more ; But there we shall embrace them again, and I live

with | them for ever. There we shall meet | all good | men, Whom we | read of in | holy l books. They loved God on earth; They | praised | him on earth ; But in that country they will praise him | better, And I will love him more. There we shall see Jesus, who is gone before us to

that happy / place ; And there we shall behold the glory / of the high !

God.
We cannot see him here, but we will love him here ;
We must be now on earth, but we will I often | think

of heaven.
That happy land | is our | home;
We are to be here but for a little while,
And there for | ever,
Even for ages of e | ternal / years.
