Representative Text

1 There is a land where shines the light
Of God’s eternal love,
The sacred realm of holy joy,
The soul’s bright land above.

O that lovely land, the summer land,
The land beyond the Jordan’s strand;
O that lovely, lovely land, the golden summer land,
The soul’s bright land above.

2 There Christ the Lord triumphant reigns,
And saints before Him fall;
They shout aloud redeeming grace,
And hail Him Lord of all. [Refrain]

3 There tears are wiped from every eye,
And every pain is o’er;
And heart that here in sorrow bled
Shall feel its throb no more. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ faith may soar above the clouds
To reach that land so fair,
Yet who can tell the pure delight
Of those who enter there? [Refrain]
