1 There is a land of light and beauty—
A sunbright shore,
Where life is love, and joy is duty,
And sorrow comes no more.
The fadeless tree of life is growing
In that fair land,
And ever there life’s stream is flowing,
Bright o’er the golden sand.
We shall meet, no more to sever,
Loved ones gone before,
And dwell with them in bliss forever
There, on that sunbright shore.
2 No night e’er comes to veil the gladness,
Of that bright clime;
No wintry blast, no gloom or sadness,
But one long summer time.
There fear no more the heart is keeping
In chill dismay,
And there from eyes long used to weeping,
God wipes all tears away. [Refrain]
3 Into those realms of bliss supernal,
Death cannot come;
And there in mansions bright, eternal,
With Jesus is our home.
By faith we see the blest immortals,
Now with Him there,
And soon we’ll pass the shining portals
And in their glory share. [Refrain]
