659. Haste, my dull soul, arise

1 Haste, my dull soul, arise,
Shake off thy care;
Press to thy native skies,
Mighty in prayer.
Christ, he has gone before,
Count all thy sufferings o'er;
He all thy burdens bore;
Jesus is there!

2 Soul for the marriage feast
Robe and prepare;
Holy must be such guests;
Jesus is there!
Saints, wear your victor palms,
Chant your celestial psalms:
Bride of the Lamb, thy charms,
O let me wear!

3 Heaven's bliss is perfect, pure;
Jesus is there!
Heaven's bliss is ever sure;
Thou art its heir.
What makes its joys complete?
What makes its hymns so sweet?
There we our friends shall greet:
Jesus is there.
