That sorrowless country

Full Text

1. Our Saviour is waiting to welcome us home,
When we in time's valley no longer shall roam;
And soon will his kind, loving voice bid us come
To him in that sorrowless country.

Oh, that sorrowless country is fairer than day,
There joys never vanish nor treasures decay;
We'll go with rejoicing when summoned away,
To dwell in that sorrowless country.

2. The wearisome trials of earth will be o'er
At last when we stand on that shadowless shore;
No grief or temptation can come evermore
To us in that sorrowless country. [Chorus]

3. Sweet flowers are blooming in beauty untold,
Redeemed ones are treading the streets of pure gold,
And we shall those glorious visions behold
For aye in that sorrowless country. [Chorus]

4. There wonderful music forever will ring,
And saved ones glad songs of redemption shall sing,
And with them we'll worship our Saviour and King
Who gave us that sorrowless country. [Chorus]
