"Thus heaven is gathering one by one in its capacious breast,
All that is pure, and permanent, and beautiful, and blest:
The family is scattered yet, though of one home and heart,
Part militant in earthly gloom; in heavenly glory part.
But who can speak the rapture when the circle is complete,
And all the children sundered now, before their father meet?
One fold, one Shepherd, one employ, one everlasting home;
'Lo, I come quickly! Even so, Amen! Lord Jesus, come.' "
