1 Our Saviour bids us come
To the beautiful land on high;
He’s promis’d us a home,
In the beautiful land on high.

Chorus:
Beautiful land, beautiful land,
Beautiful land of glory,
Beautiful land, beautiful land,
Beautiful land on high.

2 Oh, we shall happy be,
In the beautiful land on high;
From sin and sorrow free,
In the beautiful land on high. [Chorus]

3 Our lov’d ones with us there,
In the beautiful land on high;
Our happiness shall share
In the beautiful land on high. [Chorus]

4 No partings ever come
To the beautiful land on high;
To mar the peace of home
In the beautiful land on high. [Chorus]
