There is a land mine eye hath seen




There is a Land Mine Eye Hath Seen
In visions of enraptured thought;
So bright that all which spreads between
Is with its radiant glory fraught;

O land of love
of joy and light,
Thy glories gild
earth's darkest night;
Thy tranquil shore
we too shall see,
When day shall break
and shadows flee.



A land upon whose blissful shore
There rests no shadow, falls no stain;
There those who meet shall part no more,
And those long parted meet again.

O land of love
of joy and light,
Thy glories gild
earth's darkest night;
Thy tranquil shore
we too shall see,
When day shall break
and shadows flee.



Its skies are not like earthly skies,
With varying hues of shade and light;
It hath no need of suns to rise,
To dissipate the gloom of night.

O land of love
of joy and light,
Thy glories gild
earth's darkest night;
Thy tranquil shore
we too shall see,
When day shall break
and shadows flee.



There sweeps no desolating wind
Across that calm, serene abode;
The wand'rer there a home may find,
Within the Paradise of God.

O land of love
of joy and light,
Thy glories gild
earth's darkest night;
Thy tranquil shore
we too shall see,
When day shall break
and shadows flee.
