1 In a land of perfect joy and peace,
Land where love divine will never cease;
On the Throne there sits the Saviour true
Reaching out His hand to you.
Reaching out to save you now,
He is reaching out to save you now,
From yonder strand,
Behold that pierced hand,
Is reaching out to save you now.
2 He is pleading for your wand’ring soul,
Will you not press forward t’ward the goal?
He would fain uplift you from the night,
Out of darkness into light. [Refrain]
3 ‘Twas for you He died on Calvary,
In the glory now He waits for thee;
See His pierced hand thro’ heaven’s gate,
Take hold ere it be too late. [Refrain]
4 Crown’d with thorn and crucified for you,
See! His blessed side was pierced too,
Tho’ He reigns a King, His wounded hand
Beckons t’ward the better land. [Refrain]
