Representative Text

1 I have heard of a land
On a far away strand--
In the Bible the story is told--
Where no sorrow shall come,
Neither darkness nor gloom,
And nothing there ever grows old.

Chorus:
In that beautiful land
On a far away strand,
No storms with their blasts ever frown;
The streets, I am told,
Are paved with pure gold,
And the sun shall never go down.

2 There are evergreen trees
That bend low in the breeze,
And their fruitage is brighter than gold;
There are harps for our hands
In that fairest of lands,
And nothing there ever grows old. [Chorus]

3 There's a home in that land,
At the Father's right hand;
There are mansions whose joys are untold,
And perennial spring
Where the birds ever sing,
And nothing there ever grows old. [Chorus]
