(Newman Hall, "Follow Jesus")
When we get to heaven, what joy will it be to
rehearse the events of the journey, and to see
how the path was strewn all along with mercies.
How blessed will be . . .
rest after toil,
safety after peril,
victory after conflict.
Jesus will still lead us into fresh pastures,
to higher and yet higher regions of . . .
No carnal desires will drag us down.
No sinful habits will cling to and entangle us.
The flesh will no longer lust against the spirit.
No enemies will beset the road, to allure
us from it, or check our advance.
We shall forever follow Jesus . . .
forever beholding fresh beauties in His countenance,
forever discovering new glories in His character,
forever experiencing fresh raptures in His love!
