1 Beyond this land of parting, losing, and leaving,
Far beyond the losses, darkening this,
And far beyond the taking and the bereaving,
Lies the summer-land of bliss.

Refrain:
Land beyond, so fair and bright!
Land beyond, where is no night!
Summer-land, God is its light,
O happy summer-land of bliss!

2 Beyond this land of toiling, sowing, and reaping,
Far beyond the shadows, darkening this,
And far beyond the sighing, moaning, and weeping,
Lies the summer-land of bliss. [Refrain]

3 Beyond this land of sinning, fainting, and falling,
Far beyond the doubtings, darkening this,
And far beyond the griefs and dangers befalling,
Lies the summer-land of bliss. [Refrain]

4 Beyond this land of waiting, seeking, and sighing,
Far beyond the sorrows, darkening this,
And far beyond the pain, and sickness, and dying,
Lies the summer-land of bliss. [Refrain]
