During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

O heavenly land beyond the sun!

O heavenly land beyond the sun!

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

O heavenly land beyond the sun!
Far away;
Where pilgrims rest, their wanderings done,
Far away;
Where sin and sorrow, grief and pain,
Shall ne'er afflict the soul again,
Far away.

O heavenly land of promise sweet!
Far away;
Where Christ and His redeemed shall meet,
Far away;
Where love and peace shall fill the heart,
And joy respond in every part,
Far away.

O blessed land where Jesus is!
Far away;
Where all shall come He claims as His
Far away;
The pure in heart, the meek, are there,
And oh, that land is passing fair!
Far away.

O blessed land beyond the sun!
Far away;
I'll share thy joys when earth is done,
Far away;
Lord Jesus, fit me by Thy grace,
And in Thy love prepare a place,
Far away.
