1. A land by faith I see,
Where saints shall ever be
Free from mortality,
No dying there.

No dying there,
No dying there,
In that fair, heav'nly land,
No dying there,
no dying there.

2. There friends shall meet again,
In happiness to reign;
While thro' that blest domain,
No dying there. [Chorus]

3. There sorrow cannot stay;
There tears are wiped away;
One bright, eternal day,
No dying there. [Chorus]

4. O, land of beauty rare,
Free from earth blight and care,
Thy bliss I long to share,
No dying there. [Chorus]

5. For such a priceless boon,
Who would not seek that home?
Safe from the dreaded tomb,
No dying there. [Chorus]

6. For thee, sweet home, I wait;
Come, and my soul elate;
Welcome, O deathless state,
No dying there. [Chorus]
