Land of the blest

Representative Text

1 There is a land of peace and joy
Beyond this vale of tears,
Where weary souls may rest at last
From conflicts, doubts and fears.

Land of the blest!
City of rest!
Built by the Saviour!
Home of the holy and blest.

2 When shall we reach that blessed shore,
And leave this world behind?
When shall we in the realms of light
Eternal pleasures find? [Refrain]

3 Our souls now long to be set free
And ride the trackless air,
To join our own triumphant voice
With loved ones over there. [Refrain]

4 But e'en while here below, in Christ
We may its foretaste know,
And rest from self and sin and shame,
From sickness, care and woe. [Refrain]

5 Yes, walking in the Lord today,
Surrendered to His pow'r,
We find e'en here, in Him alone,
A heav'n each passing hour. [Refrain]
