1 Are you seeking the beautiful country,
That is fairer than fancy can dream?
Where the city of gold stands in splendor untold,
On the banks of life’s pure, crystal stream.

Refrain:
Are you seeking the beautiful country,
Weary pilgrim in life’s toilsome road?
By and by will you rest in the realm of the blest,
Safe at home in the country of God?

2 Are you seeking the beautiful country,
As you travel the wilderness way?
Does its far shining light, thro’ the shades of earth’s night,
Bring a vision of heavenly day? [Refrain]

3 Are you seeking the beautiful country,
To which friends fondly cherished have gone?
The departed to greet where the glorified meet,
Are you rapidly hastening on? [Refrain]

4 Are you seeking the beautiful country,
Where the King in His beauty is seen?
Will your soul pass from time to dominions sublime,
O’er the river that now rolls between? [Refrain]
