Representative Text

1 In this world there are burdens we must bear,
And our eyes are made wet and dim with tears;
There’s no grief, neither sorrow over there,
In that land where there are no days nor years.

Refrain:
In that land where there are no days nor years,
Neither sorrow nor anguish or tears;
We shall dwell there in peace and our joys ne’er shall cease,
In that land where there are no days nor years.

2 Tho’ we toil, oft our labor seems in vain,
We have faith tho’ no fruit our vision cheers;
But the Lord will all mystery make plain,
In that land where there are no days nor years. [Refrain]

3 So we smile as we labor day by day,
And forget all our sorrows, griefs and fears;
For when all earthly things have passed away,
We shall dwell where there are no days nor years. [Refrain]
