Representative Text

1 Sing me a song of the heav’nly land,
It will cheer my heart to hear
Of the beautiful tree and its golden fruits,
By the stream of life so clear,
By the stream of life so clear.

Refrain:
Sing me a song of the heav’nly land,
Of the realm of endless day,
Where the soft, gentle touch of the Savior’s hand
Shall wipe ev’ry tear away.

2 Sing me a song of the heav’nly land,
Where the night shall come no more;
Where the buds and the flow’r in eternal spring
Shall bloom on its radiant shore,
Shall bloom on its radiant shore. [Refrain]

3 Sing me a song of the heav’nly land,
Where the heart is free from care;
Where I linger by faith at the gates of pearl:
The home of my soul is there,
The home of my soul is there. [Refrain]

4 Sing me a song of the heav’nly land,
Where the pure and blest shall meet,
And the links we have miss’d from the chain of love,
Shall be found at the Savior’s feet,
Shall be found at the Savior’s feet. [Refrain]
