103. Is it Far?

1 Is it far to the land of rest?
Where the weary feet shall never, never roam,
To the mansions of the pure and the blest;
Where we all shall meet at home?

Chorus:
Is it far? is it far?
Will you tell me, brother pilgrim, is it far?
To that mansion of the blest, where the weary are at rest?
O say, brother pilgrim, is it far?

2 Is it far to that peaceful shore?
Where the aching heart shall sorrow not again,
Where the friends who meet shall part nevermore
But with Christ forever reign.
[Chorus]

3 Is it far to the plains of light?
To that city with its jasper walls aglow,
Where the glory of the Lord is the light;
To that house, say, will you go?
[Chorus]

4 It is nearer to-day than before;
And our path is growing brighter day by day,
We shall soon reach that heavenly shore;
Let us sing, and watch, and pray.
[Chorus]
