Representative Text

1 There’s a land of beauty where our Savior dwells;
Shall we all meet there?
In this world of partings there are sad farewells;
Shall we all meet there?

Refrain:
In that land of light, where all is bright and fair,
Where the Lord’s redeemed shall all his glory share,
Where they’ll see his face, his glorious likeness bear,
Shall we all meet there?

2 Where the fairest lilies feel no wintry blight;
Shall we all meet there?
Where no evening shadows dim the living light,
Shall we all meet there? [Refrain]

3 Where no sin can enter, neither grief nor pain,
Shall we all meet there?
Where the spotless garments bear no earthly stain,
Shall we all meet there? [Refrain]

4 Where there’s perfect service, perfect love and peace,
Shall we all meet there?
Where the song of triumph nevermore shall cease,
Shall we all meet there? [Refrain]
