12335. That Dear Land

1 There is a land so fair and sweet,
And on its shores our loved ones meet,
To sing its songs and praises o’er,
And tell its love for evermore.

Refrain:
We shall wake, we shall wake in that morning
When the beauty of Christ shall be known;
We shall sing, we shall sing in that morning,
Songs of glory and love and home.

2 In that dear land with mansions fair,
We’ll every thought with Jesus share,
And in His name be all complete,
While singing praises glad and sweet. [Refrain]

3 All full of peace our lives shall be,
And clearer truth each one shall see.
The perfect Guide doth lead us on,
Our friend and teacher all in one. [Refrain]
