Representative Text

1 There’s a land of light and glory,
Just beyond the pearly gates;
Where no grief or fear can enter,
Joy in all its fullness waits.

In the happy home of love,
Blessèd promises to prove;
We shall share the Savior’s glory,
In the heav’nly home above.

2 In that land no care will burden,
Jesus promised us His peace;
In the glory of His presence,
Life and love shall never cease. [Refrain]

3 As we journey t’ward its gladness,
Earthly ties by death are riv’n;
But still leading upward, onward,
Hope and faith point us to Heav’n. [Refrain]

4 Joy and rapture are eternal,
Light immortal crowns the hills;
Those we love are ours forever,
This sweet pledge all doubting stills. [Refrain]
