Representative Text

1 O land of God, O land of love,
Of perfect rest with Christ above;
I crave thy peace, I long to be,
O land of God, at home in thee.

O land of God, O blessed land,
I long within thy borders to stand;
Thy holy joys shall all be mine,
When I among thy glories shine.

2 O land of God, sweet land of rest,
Thy people are forever blest;
They walk thy vales so glad and free,
For evermore to dwell in thee. [Refrain]

3 I will not stay one moment here
When I the call of God shall hear;
My happy soul shall haste away
To thee, O land of endless day. [Refrain]
