Representative Text

1 There’s a beautiful land far away,
Where no trouble or storms ever come,
Where the straying shall nevermore stray,
And the homeless shall find a sweet home.

Chorus:
Oh, that beautiful world far away, far away,
Where no sorrow or death ever come;
Oh, when shall I see and rejoice in its day,
And be safe with my Savior at home.

2 In that beautiful world of repose,
Where the weary eternally rest,
Where the voice of oppressors and foes
Never reaches the home of the blest. [Chorus]

3 Neither sorrow nor sighing are there,
Nor are hearts ever burden’d with fears;
There none utter the wait of despair,
Nor are eyes ever blinded with tears. [Chorus]

4 ‘Tis a world of perennial day,
Unobscured by the shadows of night,
Where no cloud ever covers a ray
From the face of the Father of light. [Chorus]

5 ‘Tis the home of our fathers and God,
And our glorified Savior is there;
And those ransom’d from earth by his blood
In his joy and his glory shall share. [Chorus]
