1 If I would reach that land of light,
That knows no gloom, no darksome night,
My soul must here with radiance glow,
God’s truth display, His glory show.

Refrain:
Lord, here in us Thy Heav’n prepare,
That we may find it heaven there;
With light and beauty, heav’nly love,
Attune our souls for Heav’n above.

2 If I would reach that land so fair,
Whose beauty shines beyond compare,
My life must here with beauty shine,
With purity and grace divine. [Refrain]

3 If I would reach that land of love,
Whose joy and peace await above,
I here must share the sufferer’s smart,
I here must win the tender heart. [Refrain]
