The Glory Land

Representative Text

1 There's a land of love shining far above
In the endless glory of day,
And I long to know all the good who go
To that radiant land far away.

Refrain:
Oh, the glories there are so bright and fair,
Here no longer would I roam.
How my spirit sighs for the cloudless skies,
Of that happy, heavenly home.

2 Oh, I love to sing of the hearts that cling
To the light of that golden shore,
Starry crowns they'll wear and its glories share
With the happy ones gone before. [Refrain]

3 And I love to dream of the crystal gleam
Resting on the bright river there,
Of the white-robed throng and the glad new song
And the fadeless flowers so fair. [Refrain]

4 There shall be no night! oh! the blessed light
That illumes the heavenly shore!
No more sorrow there, and no cross to bear;
All is joy and peace evermore. [Refrain]
