1. Can we read our title clear
To a mansion in the sky?
Could we look without a fear,
If we knew our end was nigh?

Hallelujah! bless the Lord!
We shall conquer thro’ His Word;
Those who trust Him to the end
He has promised to defend.

2. If the Christian race we run,
And the cross we meekly bear,
When at last our work is done
Crowns in glory we shall wear. [Refrain]

3. O the visions of delight,
Breaking from the other shore!
O the morning calm and bright,
That shall dawn and fade no more! [Refrain]
