“Oh, yes, there is joy in sincerely believing,
No heart that is faithless can dream of or know;
There is strength in the thought that our souls are receiving
Such wealth as a Father alone can bestow.
Then away with the dogma that sin is eternal,
It dims the bright glow of Immanuel’s name;
It was not to build up a kingdom infernal
That Jesus, the friend of the sorrowful, came.
