Full Text

1 No shadows yonder!
All light and song!
Each day I wonder,
And say, “How long
Shall time me sunder
From that dear throng?"

2 No weeping yonder!
All fled away!
While here I wander,
Each weary day,
And sigh as I ponder
My long, long stay.

3 No parting yonder!
No space or time
Shall hearts e’er sunder,
In that fair clime,
Dearer and fonder—
In friendship sublime.

4 None wanting yonder!
Bought by the Lamb,
All gathered under
The evergreen palm,
Loud as night's thunder
Ascends the glad psalm.

Author: Horatius Bonar

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
