447. Hope of the Righteous

1 Beyond this world of toil and care,
Beyond this veil of gloom;
There is a land, a happy land,
A place we call our home.

Refrain:
Oh, yes, we’ll trust Him while we live!
We’ll trust Him when we die;
And then when all our work is done,
We’ll reign with Him on high.

2 Oh, what a blessed hope is this,
An anchor to the soul;
And if we do our Savior’s will,
We’ll safely reach the goal. [Refrain]

3 God says, “Ye must be born again”;
To us this truth is giv’n;
And if we do not His commands,
We shall not enter heav’n. [Refrain]

To enter heav’n we must be pure
And holy in His sight;
And every day we surely must
Be walking in the light.

4 We’ll pray for God to keep our feet
Upon the Corner Stone;
We’ll give our hearts and lives to Him,
For we are not our own. [Refrain]
