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.
