1 There is a land, a sunny clime,
The brightest ever seen,
Which lies beyond the shores of time,
Beyond cold Jordan’s stream.

Oh, that land, that happy land,
Far away, far away,
Where the saints in glory stand,
Bright as day, bright as day.

2 Beneath the tree of life’s dense shade
Life’s river floweth by,
And youth and beauty never fade,
For there they never die. [Refrain]

3 I long to reach that land so fair,
My dwelling-place to see;
Among the many mansions there,
Is one prepared for me. [Refrain]
