Representative Text

1 I am on my way to heaven,
To my home above;
God to me sweet peace has given
And I glory in his love.

I’ll glory, I’ll glory,
I’ll glory in his love,
God to me sweet peace has given,
And I glory in his love.

2 Tho’ dark clouds may low’r around me,
Still I see his face;
I rejoice that Jesus found me,
And I glory in his grace. [Refrain]

3 Bright the “Sun of Love,” now beaming,
Scatters all my night;
Thro’ my soul its radiance streaming,
Let me glory in his light. [Refrain]

4 When I wake ‘mid joy and splendor,
In my home above,
Endless praise to him I’ll render,
I will glory in his love. [Refrain]
