Representative Text

1 I have heard of a land on a far-away strand,
In the Bible the story is told,
Where cares never come—never darkness or gloom,
And nothing shall ever grow old.

Refrain:
In that beautiful land on the far-away strand
No storms with their blasts ever frown;
The streets, I am told, are paved with pure gold;
And the sun it 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 shall ever grow old. [Refrain]

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 shall ever grow old. [Refrain]
