Representative Text

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.

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]
