Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.997

First Line: Oh, world of joy untold,

Oh, world of joy untold,
Beyond the bounds of time,
Where He, the Prince of glory, dwells
In majesty sublime ;
There faith, in wonder lost,
Beholds a mighty throng,
Whose grand triumphant chorus fills
That world of love and song.

2 Through sorrows deep they came,
A path of tears they trod ;
But oh, the life for which they toiled
Was hid with Christ in God ;
They sing the battle won,
And all their trials past ;
And at the feet of Christ the Lord
Their crowns and palms they cast.

3 No aching hearts are there,
No dreary night of pain ;
And they who reach that blest abode
Shall never thirst again ;
Beneath the tree so fair,
Whose fruits immortal grow, [them
They walk with Him who leadeth
Where living fountains flow.
