Representative Text

1 I have heard of a glorious land of song,
And towards it have turned my face;
O the joy I receive as I march along,
In the light of redeeming grace.

Refrain:
In the light of redeeming grace,
In the light of redeeming grace,
I will fear no foe, as I onward go,
In the light of redeeming grace.

2 I have turned from the lowlands of sin and strife,
To the mountains of joy and peace;
I am praising the love that has changed my life,
With a song that will never cease. [Refrain]

3 Sin can harm me no more, for the Lord is mine,
And is leading me by the hand;
He will guide and protect me by love divine,
Till I cross to the promised land. [Refrain]
