Hymn/Song Information

Our country is Immanuel's ground We seek




Our country is Immanuel’s ground;
We seek that promised soil;
The songs of Zion cheer our hearts,
While strangers here we toil.


Oft do our eyes with joy o’erflow,
And oft are bathed in tears;
But only heaven our hopes can raise,
And sin alone, our fears.


We tread the path our Master trod;
We bear the cross he bore;
And every thorn that wounds our feet
His temples pierced before.


The flowers that spring along the road
We scarcely stoop to pluck;
We walk o’er beds of shining ore,
Nor waste one wishful look.


Our pow'rs are oft dissolv'd away
In ecstasies of love;
And while our bodies wander here.
Our souls are fix'd above.


We purge our mortal dross away,
Refining as we run;
And while we die to earth and sense,
Our heaven is here begun.
