Words & Mu­sic: Eli­za­beth U. Em­er­son, in Gos­pel Songs and Hymns No. 1, ed­it­ed by George B. Hol­sing­er (Mount Mor­ris, Il­li­nois: Breth­ren Pub­lish­ing House, 1898), num­ber 62 (🔊 pdf nwc).


There is a land so fair and sweet,
And on its shores our loved ones meet,
To sing its songs and prais­es o’er,
And tell its love for ev­er­more.


We shall wake, we shall wake in that morn­ing
When the beau­ty of Christ shall be known;
We shall sing, we shall sing in that morn­ing,
Songs of glo­ry and love and home.

In that dear land with man­sions fair,
We’ll ev­ery thought with Je­sus share,
And in His name be all com­plete,
While sing­ing prais­es glad and sweet.


All full of peace our lives shall be,
And clear­er truth each one shall see.
The per­fect Guide doth lead us on,
Our friend and teach­er all in one.
