1 I’m nearing Yonderland! not far away
Lies that fair clime where life and love are blest;
Full soon-tomorrow-yes, perhaps today,
Mine eyes shall see the King, and I shall rest.
I’m nearing Yonderland! O glad surprise,
When I shall gain that radiant, peaceful strand!
Tomorrow, yes, perhaps tonight, mine eyes
Shall see the King—so near is Yonderland.
2 I’m nearing Yonderland! I cannot tell
How soon my driven bark will reach the shore;
But when the anchor’s cast, it will be well,
I shall go out no more, forevermore. [Refrain]
3 I’m nearing Yonderland! e’en now I see
Her shining headlands heaving into sight;
‘Tis but a moment more and I shall be
With Him I love, and walk with Him in white. [Refrain]
4 I’m nearing Yonderland! almost I hear
The sound of voices singing round the throne;
Be glad, my soul, be glad! the time is near,
When God will safely fold thee with His own. [Refrain]
