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.

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]
