1 There’s a land that enraptures the sight,
Oh, so beautiful! Oh, so beautiful!
There our lov’d ones are fill’d with delight,
Oh, so beautiful and bright!
There the holy are singing sweetest songs,
There they praise Him to whom praise belongs;
In that land ever radiant with light,
Oh, so beautiful and bright!

2 In that land naught can ever affright,
Oh, so beautiful! Oh, so beautiful!
There they know neither sorrow nor night,
Oh, so beautiful and bright!
There with Christ evermore they sweetly rest,
By His love they will always be blest,
In that land ever radiant with light,
Oh, so beautiful and bright!

3 If we work with the King for the right,
Oh, so beautiful! Oh, so beautiful!
He will robe us in garments of white,
Oh, so beautiful and bright!
Saved by grace, full and free, it shall be well,
With our Lord and belov’d we shall dwell,
In that land ever radiant with light,
Oh, so beautiful and bright!
