Daniel and the Revelation by Uriah Smith

The Home of the Saved

Hail Earth, renewed! Celestial Paradise! 
Fit dwelling place, with all thy loveliness, 
Thy long reproach for ever wiped away,
And fairer now than when at first thy God 
Pronounced thee good--fit dwelling place, so pure, 
So beauteous, so adorned with smiling peace, 
For all the saints, all the redeemed of men; 
Who through thy gates, immortal City fair, 
Thy gates of pearl, will freely enter in, 
Where violence and riot never come,
And walk thy bright and dazzling streets of gold; 
And to the stream of life, the crystal stream 
Fast by the throne of God, have access free; 
And from the tree of life, high arching o'er, 
Pluck the eternal fruit and eat and live; 
And in Thy glad'ning smiles, O King of saints! 
Glory unspeakable possess; for in
Thy presence bright, there fullness is of joy, 
At Thy right hand, pleasures for ever more.

(From the poem "The Warning Voice of Time and Prophecy," by Uriah Smith.)
