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.

Refrain:
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]
