Lyrics

Verse 1
There is a land of bliss immortal, ǀ
Shall we be ǀ there? ǁ
No sin and sorrow cross its portal ǀ
Christ reigneth there, the King immortal, ǀ
Shall we be ǀ there? ǁ
Sweet, blessed ǀ home– ǀ
Sweet ǀ rest; ǁ
Lord, fit us ǀ for that home. ǁ

Verse 2
There death nor sickness enter never: ǀ
Shall we be ǀ there? ǁ
Eternal sunshine resteth ever; ǀ
There light and beauty dwell for ever! ǀ
Shall we be ǀ there? ǁ
Sweet, blessed ǀ home– ǀ
Sweet ǀ rest; ǁ
Lord, fit us ǀ for that home. ǁ

Verse 3
There golden harps are ever ringing; ǀ
Shall we be ǀ there? ǁ
Our grateful songs with angels mingling; ǀ
Jehovah’s praises ever singing; ǀ
Shall we be ǀ there? ǁ
Sweet, blessed ǀ home– ǀ
Sweet ǀ rest; ǁ
Lord, fit us ǀ for that home. ǁ
