That Fair Land

There’s a land far away where the long summer day,
Ever clothed with a splendor so fair,
’Tis a mansion of rest for the good and the blest,
And we’ll meet all the loved over there.

Refrain

Over there, over there,
We shall meet with the pure and the fair;
Over there, over there,
We shall meet in that home over there.

In that land of the blest with its glories confessed,
We shall rest with our Savior above;
In that bright sunny clime as the stars we shall shine,
Crowned with glory like angels of love.

Refrain

Oh! that land fair and bright, ’tis a home of delight,
’Tis a home where we’ll rest evermore;
With a robe and a crown in that home of renown
We shall sing with the loved gone before.

Refrain

"[16] But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city." Hebrews 11:16
