O IGHT SHALL BE I HEAVE.BY Thomas Raffles.o night shall be in heaven, — no gathering gloomShall o'er that glorious landscape ever come ;o tears shall fall in sadness o'er those flowersThat breathe their fragrance through celestial bowers.o night shall be in heaven, — no dreadful hourOf mental darkness or the tempter's power ;Across those skies no envious cloud shall roll.To dim the sunlight of the enraptured soul.o night shall be in heaven. Forbid to sleep,These eyes no more their mournful vigils keep ;Their fountains dried, their tears all wiped away,They gaze undazzled on eternal day.o night shall be in heaven, no sorrow's reign,o secret anguish, no corporeal pain.o shivering limbs, no burning fever there,o soul's eclipse, no winter of despair.o night shall be in heaven, but endless noon ;o fast-declining sun, nor waning moon ;But there the Lamb shall yield perpetual light,Mid pastures green and waters ever bright.o night shall be in heaven, no darkened room,o bed of death, nor silence of the tomb ;But breezes ever fresh with love and truthShall brace the frame with an immortal youth.o night shall be in heaven.
