Hymn A & M 625-  Our Father's home eternal

1. Our Father's home eternal,

O Christ, thou dost prepare

with many diverse mansions,

and each one passing fair:

they are the victor's guerdon

who, through the hard-won fight,

have followed in thy footsteps

and reign with thee in light.

2. Amid the happy number

the virgins' crown and queen,

the ever-Virgin Mother,

is first and foremost seen:

her one and only gladness,

that undefiled one,

to gaze in adoration,

the Mother, on the Son.

3. There Adam leads the chorus,

and tunes the joyous strain

of all his myriad children

that follow in thy train:

victorious over sorrow,

the countless band to see,

destroyed through his transgression,

but raised to life through thee.

4. The patriarchs in their triumph

thy praises nobly sing,

of old their promised offspring,

and now their Victor-King:

the prophets harp their gladness

that, whom their strains foretold,

in manifested glory

they evermore behold.

5. And David calls to memory

his own especial grace

in such clear prophet-vision

to see thee face to face:

the apostolic cohort,

thy valiant and thine own,

as royal co-assessors

are nearest to thy throne.

6. Thy martyrs reign in glory

who triumphed as they fell,

and by a thousand tortures

defeated death and hell;

and every patient sufferer,

who sorrow dared contemn,

for each especial anguish

hath one especial gem.

7. The valiant-souled confessors

put on their meet array,

who bare the heat and burden

of many a weary day:

the scorners of life's pleasures,

their self-denial ceased,

sit down with thee and banquet

at thy eternal feast.

8. The virgins walk in beauty

amidst their lily-bowers,

the coronals assuming

of never-ending flowers;

and innocents sport gaily

through all the courts of light,

to whom thou gav'st the guerdon

before they fought the fight.

9. The soldiers of thine army,

their earthly struggles o'er,

with joy put off the armor

that they shall need no more:

for these, and all that battled

beneath their Monarch's eyes,

the harder was the conflict

the brighter is the prize.

10. The penitent, attaining

full pardon in thy sight,

leave off the vest of sackcloth

and don the robe of white:

the bondsman and the noble,

the peasant and the king,

all gird one glorious Monarch

in one eternal ring.
