Hymn/Song Information

There is a land that lies afar Where




There is a land that lies afar,
Where grief is all unknown;
A land where-in the angels sing
Around the heav’nly throne.

Oh, ‘twill be sweet when we shall meet
Upon that distant shore,
Where-on the glorious sun ne’er sets,
But shines for evermore,
But shines for evermore.



We are but pilgrims on the earth
And brief our sojourn here:
But well we know, beyond this vale
There is a brighter sphere.

Oh, ‘twill be sweet when we shall meet
Upon that distant shore,
Where-on the glorious sun ne’er sets,
But shines for evermore,
But shines for evermore.



There is a realm of boundless love,
A goal for hearts distrest,
Where all may find endless years
A home among the blest.

Oh, ‘twill be sweet when we shall meet
Upon that distant shore,
Where-on the glorious sun ne’er sets,
But shines for evermore,
But shines for evermore.
