Representative Text

1 Where are the Hebrew children?
(Repeat previous line twice)
Safe in the promised land:
Though the furnace flamed around them,
God while in their trouble found them;
He with love and mercy bound them,
Safe in the promised land.

2 Where are the twelve apostles?
(Repeat previous line twice)
Safe in the promised land:
They went through the flaming fire,
Trusting in the great Messiah,
Holy grace did raise them higher,
Safe in the promised land.

3 Where are the holy martyrs?
(Repeat previous line twice)
Safe in the promised land:
Those who washed their robes, and made them
White and spotless pure, and laid them
Where no earthly stain could fade them,
Safe in the promised land.

4 Where are the holy Christians?
(Repeat previous line twice)
Safe in the promised land:
There our souls will join the chorus,
Saints and angels sing before us,
While all heaven is beaming o'er us,
Safe in the promised land.

5 By and by we'll go and meet them,
(Repeat previous line twice)
Safe in the promised land:
There we'll sing and shout together,
There we'll sing and shout hosanna,
There we'll sing and shout forever,
Safe in the promised land.

6 Glory to God Almighty,
(Repeat previous line twice)
Who called us unto him,
Who are blind by sinful nature.
Who have sinned against our Maker,
Who did send his son to save us,
Safe in the promised land.

7 Where is our blessed Savior?
(Repeat previous line twice)
Safe in the promised land:
He was scourged and crucified,
He by Romans was derided,
Thus the Lord of glory died,
To raise our souls above.

The Southern Harmony, 1835
