1. I have a future all sublime,
Beyond the realms of space and time,
Where my Redeemer I shall see,
And sorrow nevermore shall be.

3. O, God be praised, He planned for me;
From anxious care I’m spared and free;
He bids me cast on Him my care—
What then remains for me to bear?

4. Sweet peace within my soul doth dwell;
With joy I sing: Now all is well,
He leads me safely by His hand
Until I reach the Glory Land.

5. O precious Savior, teach Thou me
To live my life more true to Thee
The little while I yet must roam
Before I reach my heav’nly home.
