Lyrics

Good news, good news from the pro­mised land!
Good news from the gold­en shore,
Where the ran­somed hosts with their harps in hand
Are shout­ing ev­er­more!

Refrain

Victory! Vic­to­ry!
Glory to God for vic­to­ry!
We’ll praise Him for the vic­to­ry,
Thro’ Je­sus Christ our Lord.

By faith we climb to the moun­tain’s brow,
And gaze on the clus­ters rare
Of the fruits that grow on the tree of life
For those who en­ter there.

Refrain

No sin nor death in the pro­mised land,
No toil for the wea­ry soul,
But the glad new song of the blood-washed throng
In cease­less joy shall roll.

Refrain

No night of tears in the pro­mised land,
From care we shall all be free;
We shall walk in white by the ri­ver clear,
The Lamb our light shall be.

Refrain
