Representative Text

1 Far beyond life’s gloomy portals,
Far beyond earth’s clouds and night;
Lies the land of bright immortals,
Bathed in living, shining light.

Forward, then, with brave endeavor;
Forward, it can not be long
Till the soul shall rest forever
In the land of love and song.

2 To that land my feet are wending,
Thro’ the dark and dreary day;
But my soul ofttimes is blending
With a song that cheers the way. [Refrain]

3 Patient be, O heart so lowly;
Patient be, O soul so sad!
In the end thou shalt find only
Joy, peace, love to make thee glad. [Refrain]

4 For the hand of Christ is leading
Thee thro’ all this border land;
And thy feet, tho’ bruised and bleeding,
Soon will touch the shining strand. [Refrain]
