Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1841

Hymn 246
1. Nor eye hath seen—nor ear hath heard,
Nor sense, nor reason known
What joys the Father has prepared
For those that love his Son.

2. But the good Spirit of the Lord
Reveals a heaven to come;
The beams of glory in his word
Allure and guide us home.

3. Pure are the joys above the sky,
And all the region peace;—
No wanton lips nor envious eye
Can see or taste the bliss.

4. Those holy gates forever bar
Pollution, sin, and shame;
None shall obtain admittance there,
But foll'wers of the Lamb.
