For ever with the Lord


    • For ever with the Lord! 
    • Amen, so let it be; 
    • life from the dead is in that word, 
    • „This immortality. 
    • Here in the body pent, 
    • absent from Him I roam, 
    • yet nightly pitch my moving tent, 
    • a day‟s march nearer home. 

    • My Father‟s house on high, 
    • home of my soul; how near 
    • at times to faith‟s foreseeing eye 
    • Thy golden gates appear: 
    • my thirsty spirit faints 
    • to reach the land I love; 
    • the bright inheritance of saints, 
    • Jerusalem above. 

    • For ever with the Lord! 
    • Father, if „This Thy will, 
    • the promise of that faithful word 
    • e‟en here to me fulfil! 
    • Be Thou at my right hand, 
    • then can I never fail; 
    • uphold Thou me so I shall stand, 
    • fight, and I must prevail. 

    • So, when my latest breath 
    • shall rend the veil in twain, 
    • by death I shall escape from death 
    • and life eternal gain. 
    • Knowing as I am known, 
    • how shall I love that word! 
    • And oft repeat before the throne: 
    • For ever with the Lord!
