OH how soon! All that now loads the heart with care, and wrings it with sorrow all that dims the eyes with tears, and renders the day anxious and the night sleepless, will be as though it had never been. Emerging from the entanglement, the dreariness, the solitude, the loneliness and the temptations of the wilderness, you shall enter upon your everlasting rest, your unfading inheritance, where there is no sorrow, no declension, no sin; where there is no sunset, no twilight, no evening shades, no midnight darkness, but, all is one perfect, cloudless, eternal day for Jesus is the joy, the light and the glory thereof.
“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God and Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen.”
From Personal Declension and Revival of Religion in the Soul by Octavius Winslow
