Know ye that better land

Representative Text

1 Know ye that better land,
Where care's unknown?
Know ye that blessed band,
Around the throne?
There, there is happiness,
There streams of purest bliss,
There, there are rest and peace--
There, there alone.

2 Yes, yes, we know that place,
We know it well;
Eye hath not seen his face,
Tongue can not tell;
There are the angels bright,
There saints enrobed in white,
All, all are clothed in light--
There, there they dwell.

3 O! we are weary here,
A little band,
Yet soon in glory there
We hope to stand;
Then let us haste away,
Spend o'er this world's dark way,
Unto that land of day--
That better land.

1 There is a happy land,
Far, far away;
Where saints in glory stand,
Bright, bright as day;
O, how they sweetly sing,
Worthy is the Savior King,
Loud let his praises ring,
Praise, praise for aye!

2 Come to that happy land,
Come, come away;
Why will ye doubting stand,
Why still delay?
O, we shall happy be,
When from sin and sorrow free,
Lord, ye shall live with thee,
Blest, blest for aye.

3 Bright in that happy land,
Beams every eye;
Kept by a Father's hand,
Love can not die.
O, then, to glory run,
Be a crown and kingdom won,
And, bright above the sun
We reign for aye.
