Representative Text

1 Far down o’er the ages a promise divine
Descended to us in the fullness of time—
A seed should appear in the stars of the heav’n,
And they should inherit a land to be giv’n.

Oh, we are the seed, so happy and blest,
That dwell in the land of Canaan’s holy rest;
Here streams of pure love are flowing along,
And anthems of glory are sounding in song.

2 From Egypt we started, resolved to be free,
And God cast our foes all behind in the sea;
Then straight through the wilderness onward we moved,
No halt, we determined, till Canaan we proved. [Refrain]

3 The wide severed waters of Jordan we passed,
Our lot in the land of all blessings we’ve cast;
The “ites” are destroyed, and the land is our own,
One King, our Redeemer, we worship alone. [Refrain]

4 This land is salvation, and holiness pure,
We find it in Jesus, our title is sure;
O sweet land of Beulah, thy glory divine
Forever and ever unclouded shall shine. [Refrain]
