They joy to meet their Lord
In clouds above, with them that slept
In Christ, their sure reward.
 
6 That glorious rest will then commence,
Which prophets did foretell,
When Christ will reign, with saints on earth
And in their presence dwell
A thousand years: O glorious day!
Dear Lord prepare my heart,
To stand with thee, on Zion’s mount,
And never more to part.
 
7 Then when the thousand years are past,
And satan is unbound,
O Lord preserve us from his grasp,
By fire from heav’n sent down,
Until our great last change shall come,
T’ immortalize this clay,
Then we in the celestial world,
Will spend eternal day.
 
Hymn 67 • Jesus the name that charms our fears
HYMN 67. C. M.
 
1 Jesus the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease,
’Tis music in the christian’s ear;
’Tis life, and health, and peace.
