THERE is a land of calm delight
To sorrowing mortals given;
There rapt'rous scenes enchant the sight,
And all to soothe the soul unite-
Sweet is their rest in heaven.
There glory beams on all the plains,
And joy for hope is given;
There music swells in sweetest strains,
And spotless beauty ever reigns,
And all is love in heaven.
There cloudless skies are ever bright,
Thence gloomy scenes are driven;
There suns dispense unsullied light;
And planets beaming on the sight,
Illume the fields of heaven.
There is a stream that ever flows,
To passing pilgrims given;
There fairest fruit immortal grows,
The verdant flower eternal blows,
Amid the fields of heaven.
There is a great, a glorious prize
For those with sin who've striven;
'T is bright as star of evening skies,
And far above it glittering lies
A golden crown in heaven.
