Ninety-Fifth Psalm 36b

When I can read my title clear,
To mansions in the skies.
Iíll bid farewell to evíry fear,
And wipe my weeping eyes.

There I shall bathe my weary soul,
In seas of heavínly rest,
And not a wave of trouble roll
Across my peaceful breast.

When weíve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
Weíve no less days to sing Godís praise,
Than when we first begun.
