O That Land

Representative Text

1 Yonder are the golden gates,
Opened wide to me;
Yonder golden mansions bright,
Lo, by faith I see;
Yonder is the river clear,
Flowing from the Throne,
And this vision beautiful
Bids me hasten on.

O that land by faith I see,
Glorious home of all the blest,
Blessed land prepared for me;
There some day my soul shall rest.
O that land, by faith I see,
Blessed land prepared for me;
Glorious home of all the blest,
There some day my soul shall rest, yes,
There some day; my soul shall rest.

2 Yonder are the streets of gold,
Trod by saintly feet;
There exultant patriarchs'
Happy prophets greet;
Saints redeemed by Jesus' blood
Praise their Lord who died,
From earth's cares forever free.
Happy they abide. [Refrain]

3 Yonder stands the tree of life
By the river's brink;
There the ransomed taste the fruit
And the waters drink;
Hark! what music greets my ear,
Harps and organs play!
I shall also join them there
Some bright happy day. [Refrain]
