Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

O heavenly land beyond the sun!

O heavenly land beyond the sun!

Full Text

O heavenly land beyond the sun!
Far away;
Where pilgrims rest, their wanderings done,
Far away;
Where sin and sorrow, grief and pain,
Shall ne'er afflict the soul again,
Far away.

O heavenly land of promise sweet!
Far away;
Where Christ and His redeemed shall meet,
Far away;
Where love and peace shall fill the heart,
And joy respond in every part,
Far away.

177
O blessed land where Jesus is!
Far away;
Where all shall come He claims as His
Far away;
The pure in heart, the meek, are there,
And oh, that land is passing fair!
Far away.

O blessed land beyond the sun!
Far away;
I'll share thy joys when earth is done,
Far away;
Lord Jesus, fit me by Thy grace,
And in Thy love prepare a place,
Far away.
