There shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away.@Revelation 21:4

Robert Jackson (1842-1914)

There is no night in Heaven;
In that blest world above
Work never can bring weariness,
For work itself is love.

There is no grief in Heaven;
For life is one glad day;
And tears are of those former things
Which all have passed away.

There is no sin in Heaven;
Behold that blessèd throng:
All holy is their spotless robe,
All holy is their song!

There is no death in Heaven;
For they who gain that shore
Have won their immortality,
And they can die no more.

Lord Jesus, be our guide;
O lead us safely on,
Till night and grief and sin and death
Are past, and Heaven is won!
