1 There’s a beautiful land on high,
To its glories I fain would fly,
When by sorrow pressed down,
I long for my crown,
In that beautiful land on high.

Refrain:
In that beautiful land I’ll be
From earth and its cares set free;
My Jesus is there, He’s gone to prepare
A place in that land for me.

2 There’s a beautiful land on high,
And my kindred its bliss enjoy;
Methinks I now see how they’re waiting for me,
In that beautiful land on high. [Refrain]

3 There’s a beautiful land on high,
And though here I oft weep and sigh,
My Jesus hath said that no tears shall be shed
In that beautiful land on high. [Refrain]

4 There’s a beautiful land on high,
Where we never shall say, “Goodbye”;
When over the river we’re happy for ever
In that beautiful land on high. [Refrain]
