O What Blessed Words

O what blessed words are these,
How divinely sweet they sound!
Ever, ever with the Lord,
Where eternal joys abound.

Ever, ever, ever with the Lord;
Ever, ever, ever with the Lord.

Earth’s dark sorrows all are o’er,
Vain regrets and pains and fears,
Days of weariness and toil,
Nights of unavailing tears. [Refrain]

Love’s triumphant day has dawned,
Every heart is filled with peace;
And the holy song of praise
Thro’ the ages shall not cease. [Refrain]
