Hymns from “The Heavenly Token” 1856
By David Addison Harsha (1827-1895)------------------------
FromIMMANUEL'S LAND 1856.----------------------
"I go to prepare a place for you." John 14:2
There is a world of rich delight,Where warm affections glow;Where reigns the everlasting light,Where crystal waters flow.There happy saints securely dwellFrom Satan's deadly power;Their bliss no mortal tongue can tell,Unfolding every hour.They dwell with Jesus, and beholdThe beauties of his face;Secure in the celestial fold,And crowned by sovereign grace.From earth and all its empty joys,Blest Jesus, set me free;How vain the worldling's gilded toys,Compared with heaven and thee!You are my hope, my way, my bliss,My glory, and my crown;Descend O blessed Prince of Peace,And make my heart your throne."---------------------------
"My, soul, on Pisgah's mount ascend,where Moses once admiring stood.There view the promised land extend beyond the swelling Jordan's flood.By faith survey the landscape o'er,Where living waters gently flow;'Till earth usurp your love no more,'Till all you're your kindling passions glow."----------------------------
"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." Matthew 5:8."At your right hand there are pleasures for evermore." Psalm 16:11
."In those blest regions of delight,Where Jesus is unveiled to sight, No mortal tongue can e'er expressThe ransomed sinner's blessedness."---------------------------"The tree of life shall bless their sight,With golden fruit their taste delightBeneath its green and spreading boughs,The harp shall lull them to repose;And in seraphic pleasures deep,Their powerful senses ever steep."---------------------------
"In your presence is fullness of joy." Psalm 16:11
"There, in your blissful presence, reignsImmortal joy serene; No wintry storms are heard to roar, Nor desolation seen."Around you flow unmixed delights,
The rivers deep and wide;While from the ocean of your love,Proceeds an endless tide."You of all joy the center are;Oh! never from my soul depart;Blest Jesus! let your saving love,Like dew, drop gently from above."---------------------------
"And now, all glory to God, who is able to keep you from stumbling, and who will bring youinto his glorious presence innocent of sin and with great joy. All glory to him, who alone isGod our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Yes, glory, majesty, power, and authoritybelong to him, in the beginning, now, and forevermore. Amen." 
Jude 1:24-25
"Joy is a fruit that will not growIn nature's barren soil;All we boast till Christ we know,Is vanity and toil."But where the Lord has planted grace,And made his glories known;There fruits of heavenly joy and peaceAre found, and there alone."A bleeding Savior seen by faith,A sense of pard'ning love;A hope that triumphs over death,Give joys like those above."To take a glimpse within the veil,To know that God is mine;Are springs of joy that never fail,Unspeakable! Divine!"These are the joys which satisfy,And sanctify the mind;Which make the spirit mount on high,And leave the world behind."No more, believers, mourn your lot,But if you are the Lord's;
