1 Far above earth’s lowering shadows,
Well I know the sunlight falls,
And the glory of God’s presence
Glitters o’er the jasper walls.
Land of sunshine! there no shadow,
Shuts the light from out the soul,
There no tempests darkly gather,
While the happy ages roll.

2 Here the mists of sorrow shroud us
Friends depart or prove unkind,
There our Father’s smile is constant,
Driving gloom from out the mind.
May I only reach that country,
What doth matter darkness here,
Like a dream ‘twill be forgotten,
When that glory shall appear.

3 Far above earth’s lowering shadows,
Well I know the sunlight falls,
And the glory of God’s presence
Glitters o’er the jasper walls.
Land of sunshine! there no shadow,
Shuts the light form out the soul,
There no tempests darkly gather,
While the happy ages roll.
