"There is a river, the streams whereof make glad the City of God."
"And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads."

RIVER of God! that springest
Before the throne on high,
To weary men thou bringest
Healing and comfort nigh.

Beside thy crystal waters,
Within thy golden street,
God's chosen sons and daughters
In one bright body meet.

They know no care for ever;
Sorrow and pain are o'er:
That union naught shall sever
They "live for evermore."

They stand in peace before him Whose name is on their brow;
They love and they adore him Before whose throne they bow.

They see the hand that fed them,
The power that kept them strong;
They bless the love that led them
Tenderly all life long.

River of God! with gladness That city thou dost fill;
Thou dost dispel all sadness - Thou dost all strength instill.

River of God! beside thee
Pure joys and love abide,
What though earth's mists may hide thee -
What though rash men deride?

They hide, but cannot stain thee;
We feel that thou are pure
We cannot yet attain thee,
Yet know thee ever sure.

{August 4, 1859 UrSe, ARSH 81.10}

Your brother in Christ
