The days of heaven are peaceful days,

Still as yon glassy sea;

So calm, so still in God, our days,

As the days of heaven.

The days of heaven are holy days,

From sin forever free;

So cleansed and kept our days, O Lord,

As the days of heaven would be.

The days of heaven are happy days,

Sorrow they never see;

So full of gladness all our days,

As the days of heaven would be.

The days of heaven are healthful days,

They feed on life’s fair tree;

So feeding on Thy strength, O Christ,

Our days as heaven may be.

Walk with us, Lord, thro’ all the days,

and let us walk with Thee;

Till as Thy will is done in heaven,

On earth so shall it be.

 

From Songs of The Spirit Christian Missionary Publishing, 1920
