In the land of life and glory

Representative Text

1 In the land of life and glory,
Where no pain can ever come,
We shall dwell all free from sorrow,
We shall rest with Christ at home.

In the land of life and glory,
Where no pain can ever come;
We shall live with Christ forever,
In that fair eternal home.

2 No more labor, no more sickness,
No more longing, no more care,
But a life of heavenly gladness,
We shall with the Saviour share. [Chorus]

3 No more want, and no more needy,
No more sadness, no more fears,
No more death, and no more crying,
He shall wipe away our tears. [Chorus]

4 Soon in glory, Christ returning,
Shall his loved ones to him bring;
That they may be with him ever,
Praises to him ever sing. [Chorus]

5 Thro' the everlasting ages,
In the land of life and joy,
We shall find with our Redeemer,
Heavenly bliss, without alloy. [Chorus]
