1 Some sweet day I shall enter a place,
When the work of my life shall be done;
A place that is filled with His marvelous grace,
In the land of the Unsetting Sun.

I shall dwell in the Land of Delight
When my journey on earth has been run;
In the land where there cometh no sorrow, no night,
In the land of the Unsetting Sun.

2 Yes, the burdens of life can be borne,
When I think of the prize to be won;
Of the beautiful robe and the crown to be worn,
In the land of the Unsetting Sun. [Refrain]

3 I can peacefully welcome the night
When the hours of my life shall be run;
It will bring me no grief, but supernal delight
In the land of the Unsetting Sun. [Refrain]

4 O what joy! mortal tongue cannot tell,
With eternity only begun,
One another to meet, with the Savior to dwell,
In the land of the Unsetting Sun. [Refrain]
