Representative Text

1 Land ahead! a light is gleaming
O’er the dark and sullen waves,
While the world at large is dreaming,
Thinking not of him who saves.
Land ahead! sweet words so cheering
To the tempest-tost and tried,
For the heavenly port we’re nearing,
Land for which we oft have sighed.

Refrain:
But amid the tempest’s road,
Zion’s ship is nearing shore;
Get the anchor o’er the rail
Soon we’ll cast within the vail.

2 Land ahead! “the night of weeping”
Yields to dawn of endless day;
Jesus comes to wake the sleeping
Jewels that are laid away.
Land ahead! our home in glory,
Pilgrims soon its shores will throng;
Then we’ll sing “the old, old story,”
And will shout redemption’s song. [Refrain]
