John R. Sweney (1837–1899)


When from the scenes of earth we rise,
To find our home beyond the skies,
What vi­sions then shall greet our eyes,
When we shall be with Je­sus!


To be with Je­sus, O how sweet!
With saints and an­gels at His feet,
With songs we shall each oth­er greet,
And ev­er be with Je­sus.

The storms of life will all be o’er,
Our souls be tem­pest tossed no more,
When we have reached the gold­en shore,
For we shall be with Je­sus.


Redeemed from sin and saved by grace,
We shall be­hold His bless­èd face,
The won­ders of His love to trace,
As we shall be with Je­sus.


With Him in glo­ry e’er to stay,
Where founts of liv­ing waters play,
And sor­row’s tears are wiped away,
Forevermore with Je­sus.
