Full Text

O heavenly land beyond the sun!
Far away;
Where pilgrims rest, their wanderings done,
Far away;
Where sin and sorrow, grief and pain,
Shall ne'er afflict the soul again,
Far away.

O heavenly land of promise sweet!
Far away;
Where Christ and His redeemed shall meet,
Far away;
Where love and peace shall fill the heart,
And joy respond in every part,
Far away.

177
O blessed land where Jesus is!
Far away;
Where all shall come He claims as His
Far away;
The pure in heart, the meek, are there,
And oh, that land is passing fair!
Far away.

O blessed land beyond the sun!
Far away;
I'll share thy joys when earth is done,
Far away;
Lord Jesus, fit me by Thy grace,
And in Thy love prepare a place,
Far away.
