Representative Text

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

In that glorious land,
what a happy band!
Ere long we shall stand, and sing with them,
In the city of God--Jerusalem.

2 Outgushing beneath the throne of God,
And of the blest Lamb at his right hand,
Thence runneth the crystal stream of life,
A fountain of joy in that Glorious Land. [Chorus]

3 In the midst of the street, on either side,
The tree of life arching the way o'ershades,
With health-giving foliage, far and wide--
No sickness this Glorious Land invades. [Chorus]

4 Twelve manner of fruits hang pendant there,
And all who partake shall never die;
With Jesus they dwell, and ever share
The joys of that Glorious Land on high. [Chorus]

5 The afflictions of life are brief and light,
While faith looks beyond the dark Jordan's strand,
Where goldenly shine the mansions bright,
Which Jesus prepares in that Glorious Land. [Chorus]

6 Then come, my dear brethren, let us haste
To finish our work with unfaltering hand,
And soon the sweet joys of heaven we'll taste,
With all the redeemed in that Glorious Land. [Chorus]
