Representative Text

1 O beautiful land, where the weary shall rest!
O glorious abode, happy home of the blest!
O Saviour of souls! let me there be the guest,
How sweet it will be to be there.

Chorus:
How sweet to be there! how sweet to be there!
Where all is so lovely and fair,
Not a sorrow shall come to that beautiful home,
How sweet it will be to be there.

2 O mansions of light, where no clouds intervene!
O pastures of love, with your verdure so green!
O rivers of joy, flowing round the bright scene,
How sweet it must be to be there. [Chorus]

3 O wide spreading trees, with your soft, cooling shade!
O rich-laden fields, in your beauty arrayed!
O rare-scented flow’rs, blooming never to fade!
How sweet it must be to be there. [Chorus]

4 O glorified throng at Immanuel’s feet!
O rapturous song that His praises repeat!
O wonderful love! all in Christ made complete,
How sweet it must be to be there. [Chorus]
