Asleep in Jesus
The saints in Jesus, when their bodies sleep in the
peace of DEATH, have perpetual fellowship with Him--
yes, far better fellowship than we on earth can enjoy.
We have but a transitory glimpse of His face;
they gaze upon it every moment.
We see Him through a glass darkly;
they behold Him face to face.
We sip of the brook by the way; they plunge
into the very ocean of unbounded love.
We sometimes get drops of comfort;
but they get the honeycomb itself.
They that sleep in Jesus are full of peace,
and full of joy forever.
