24. No Wishful Glances

1 No wishful glances now I cast
Tow’rd Canaan’s happy shore,
For I have reached that land of rest,
To wander never more.

I’m over in the Promised Land,
And marching on with Joshua’s band;
My life is hid with Christ in God,
I’m sanctified, O praise the Lord!

2 Old Jordan’s waves now roll behind,
The sky is clear above,
And all along the way I find
The joys of “perfect love.” [Refrain]

3 On ev’ry side sweet lilies nod,
Inviting me to stay;
The birds, the rills, all sing of God;
O brother, come this way! [Refrain]

4 In Beulah’s vale rich fruits abound;
And milk and honey flow;
Within the soil rare gems are found,
And costly spices grow. [Refrain]

5 When giants high above me tow’r,
And boast of mighty strength,
Faith grasps her “two-edged sword” of pow’r,
And lays them out their length. [Refrain]

6 Here Jesus comes and whispers low
His sweetest words of love,
And bids me pray, and work, and grow,
Till called to joys above. [Refrain]
