Here you will find the Poem For ever with the Lord! of poet James Montgomery
'For ever with the Lord!' Amen, so let it be; Life from the dead is in that word, 'Tis immortality. Here in the body pent, Absent from Him I roam; Yet nightly pitch my moving tent A day's march nearer home. My father's house on high, Home of my soul, how near; At times to faith's foreseeing eye, Thy golden gates appear! In darkness as in light Hidden alike from view, I sleep, I wake within his sight Who looks existence through. From the dim hour of birth, Through every changing state Of mortal pilgrimage on earth, Till its appointed date; All that I am, have been, All that I yet may be, He sees at once, as He hath seen, And shall for ever see. Be Thou at my right hand, Then can I never fail; Uphold Thou me, and I shall stand, Fight, and I must prevail.
