In that land of bliss where holy angels dwell

Tune: [In that land of bliss where holy angels dwell]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 In that land of bliss where holy angels dwell
In the presence of the King,
We shall gather soon, the wondrous theme to swell,
His redeeming love to sing.

In that heav'nly land, we shall sing a song,
Telling forth His wondrous love;
We shall join the song of the ransom'd throng
In the land of bliss above.

2 In that sweet new song which saints alone can sing,
Rescued ones who once were lost,
We shall gladly join in tribute to our King,
Who redeemed us at such cost. [Chorus]

3 Here on earth below while waiting for that day,
Let us now our lips employ
In a song in tune, to cheer the upward way
T'ward the everlasting joy. [Chorus]

4 Thou art worthy, Lord, Thou King of saints below,
"Just and true are all thy ways;"
Bring us home at last, life's mysteries to know,
And to Thee shall be the praise. [Chorus]
