The city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.@Revelation 21:23

Some sweet day I shall enter a place,
When the work of my life shall be done;
A place that is filled with His marvelous grace,
In the land of the unsetting sun.

Refrain

I shall dwell in the land of delight,
When my journey on earth has been run;
In the land where there cometh no sorrow, no night,
In the land of the unsetting sun.

Yes, the burdens of life can be borne,
When I think of the prize to be won;
Of the beautiful robe and the crown to be worn,
In the land of the unsetting sun.

Refrain

I can peacefully welcome the night
When the hours of my life shall be run;
It will bring me no grief, but supernal delight,
In the land of the unsetting sun.

Refrain

O what joy! mortal tongue cannot tell,
With eternity only begun,
One another to meet, with the Savior to dwell,
In the land of the unsetting sun.

Refrain
