That sorrowless country

Representative 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.

Chorus:
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]
