There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
      - Bible, Hebrews (ch. IV, v. 9)

No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go upon thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
  And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

    Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
      - Bible, Matthew (ch. V, v. 33)

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
  But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
    For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Beyond the smiling and the weeping,
  I shall be soon;

      Beyond the sowing and the reaping,
        I shall be soon!
          Love, rest, and home--
            Sweet hope! Lord, tarry not, but come!
      - Horatius Bonar, D.D.

There is a land where everlasting suns
  Shed everlasting brightness; where the soul
    Drinks from the living streams of love that roll
      By God's high throne! myriads of glorious ones
        Bring their accepted offering. Oh! how blest
          To look from this dark prison to that shrine,
            To inhale one breath of Paradise divine,
              And enter into that eternal rest
                Which waits the sops of God.
      - Sir John Bowring

Fish say, they have their Stream and Pond;
  But is there anything Beyond?

Spend in pure converse our eternal day;
  Think each in each, immediately wise;
    Learn all we lacked before; hear, know, and say
      What this tumultuous body now denies;
        And feel, who have laid our groping hands away;
          And see, no longer blinded by our eyes.
      - Rupert Brooke, New Numbers

Heaven does not make holiness, but holiness makes heaven.
      - Phillips Brooks
