JUST outside the land of promise
You have waited many years,
And your life has been o’erclouded
With a host of haunting fears.
There is victory in Jesus,
Come to him without delay;
Seek just now a full salvation
And the voice of God obey.
To redeem and make you holy
Jesus left his throne above;
Now believe and take the blessing,
Nothing less than perfect love.
2 You have long been hesitating,
Hindered by your unbelief,
And your wilful disobedience
Oft has caused you bitter grief.
Stay no longer on the threshold,
Now believe and enter in;
Claim through Christ complete deliverance
From the slavery of sin.
3 Though you know your sins forgiven,
Greater things await you still;
Freedom here from sin’s dominion,
Power to do the Master’s will.
Fear no longer, he is with you,
Let no foe your steps arrest;
Seek today the Father’s blessing,
Enter now the land of rest.
