Representative Text

1 This life is but a crowded scene,
Of sorrow, pain, and care,
Where grief awaits us day by day,
And brings us much to bear;
But if we trust our Savior dear,
He’ll make the way seem bright,
And when we die we’ll go to dwell,
In that fair land of light.

Refrain:
Happy land, beautiful land,
Land where there is no night,
Happy land, beautiful land,
Blest land of sweet delight.

2 If we but do our Savior’s will,
He will our troubles bear;
Each blessed promise He’ll fulfill,
A robe of white we’ll wear;
We’ll enter at the golden gate,
Sweet Jesus, sweet delight;
And happy we will ever be,
In that fair land of light. [Refrain]

3 We soon shall reach that shining shore,
And be forever blest,
Sweet friends and kindred gone before,
There sweetly we shall rest;
Rest in that far off better land,
Oh what a glorious sight,
With all the shining host to stand,
In that fair land of light. [Refrain]
