Representative Text

1 There’s a land far away where the long summer day,
Ever clothed with a splendor so fair,
’Tis a mansion of rest for the good and the blest,
And we’ll meet all the loved over there.

Over there, over there,
We shall meet with the pure and the fair;
Over there, over there,
We shall meet in that home over there.

2 In that land of the blest with its glories confessed,
We shall rest with our Savior above;
In that bright sunny clime as the stars we shall shine,
Crowned with glory like angels of love. [Refrain]

3 Oh! that land fair and bright, ’tis a home of delight,
’Tis a home where we’ll rest evermore;
With a robe and a crown in that home of renown
We shall sing with the loved gone before. [Refrain]
