Representative Text

1 There is a land so dear to me,
It lies beyond the silent sea;
Where heights of love I seek in vain,
My longing soul shall there attain.

Saviour, lead, O lead me there,
To the faces ever fair;
To the forms I long to see,
Saviour, hold me close to thee.

2 There is a land where never fades
The rainbow or the summer shades;
Where we, beneath a cloudless sky,
Shall view the flow'rs that never die. [Chorus]

3 There is a land where forms so bright
Shall never vanish from my sight,
And leave affection's streams to roll
In Alpine torrents on my soul. [Chorus]

4 There is a land where peace shall bide,
Joy flows in one perpetual tide;
And love's fair light shall ever beam,
And sorrows vanish like a dream. [Chorus]
