Representative Text

1 The Bible reveals a glorious land,
Where angels and glorified spirits dwell;
Where pleasures ne’er end at God’s right hand,
And anthems of praise forever swell.

Refrain:
We shall meet in that glorious land,
We shall meet in that glorious land,
We shall meet in that glorious land,
And sing evermore with the angel band.

2 Outgushing beneath the throne of God,
The blessed Lamb at His right hand,
There runneth the crystal stream of life,
A fountain of joy in that glorious land. [Refrain]

3 Then come, my dear children, let us haste
To finish our work with unfaltering hand,
And soon the sweet joys of Heav’n we’ll taste,
With all the redeemed in that glorious land. [Refrain]
