Eternal rest or eternal song

We enjoy the message we put here on the 13th October: good singer Alexandrina would soon sing hymns to the glory of God.
One of the prefaces of the Mass concludes:
And so, with the company of Angels and Saints, we sing the hymn of your praise, as  without end we acclaim:
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts!
Heaven and earth are full of your glory!
Hosanna in the highest!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!
This way of conceiving eternal life, because it is also it, is much more motivating than the "eternal rest among the splendors of everlasting light."
Our Earth tiredness does not need an eternity of heavenly rest...
