Beyond earth's latest sunset

Representative Text

1 Beyond earth’s latest sunset
There lies a county bright,
Where fadeless day is glowing,
That never sinks to night.

“No night there!”
No sorrow and no fears;
“No night there!”
No pain, no death, no tears;
“No night there!”
Where care hath passed away;
“No night there!”
But endless, fadeless day.

2 Beyond earth’s final heart-ache
There lies a land of peace,
Where sorrow never cometh,
Where pain and trouble cease. [Refrain]

3 Beyond earth’s latest suff’ring
There lies a country fair,
Where dwellers are immortal;
No death can enter there. [Refrain]

4 O land beyond the sunset,
Where time shall be no more,
Some bright, ecstatic morning
We’ll sight thy peaceful shore! [Refrain]
