Come to the land of peace

Representative Text

Breathe through the bright, celestial air
The spirit of the dove.

Come to the bright and blest,
Gathered from every land;
For here thy soul shall find its rest,
Amidst the shining band.

In this divine abode
Change leaves no saddening trace;
Come, trusting spirit, to thy God,
Thy holy resting-place!
