Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.981

First Line: 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 glories 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.

2 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.

3 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.

4 There sweeps no desolating wind
Across the calm, serene abode :
The wanderer there a home may find
Within the paradise of God.
