There’s a land where all are blest,
Land of love,
Where redeemed ones are at rest,
Land of love;
There we’ll sing our Savior’s praise,
In transcendent, joyful lays,
Throughout ceaseless, heav’nly days,
Land of love.

Refrain

Land of love, land of love,
Throughout ceaseless, heav’nly days,
Land of love,
In transcendent, joyful lays,
We will sing our Savior’s praise,
Throughout ceaseless heav’nly days,
Land of love.

There amid celestial green,
Land of love,
Viewing glories here unseen,
Land of love;
We shall cease from toil and care,
Bask in genial, fragrant air,
Dwell with angels bright and fair,
Land of love.

Refrain

With the ransomed gone before,
Land of love,
Gathered on the golden shore,
Land of love;
We shall sit at Jesus’ feet,
And love’s tribute oft repeat,
There our rest will be complete,
Land of love.

Refrain
