O Wondrous Land

Verse 1:
There is a land of pure delight,
Where saints immortal reign;
Eternal day excludes the night,
And pleasures banish pain.

Refrain:
O wond’rous land beyond the sky,
O land so bright and fair,
When shall we reach thy golden gates,
And dwell forever there?

Verse 2:
There everlasting spring abides,
And never-with’ring flow’rs;
Death, like a narrow sea, divides
This heavenly land from our.

Verse 3:
Sweet fields beyond the swelling flood
Stand dress’d in living green;
So to the Jews old Canaan stood,
While Jordan rolled between.

Verse 4:
Could we but climb where Moses stood,
And view the landscape o’er,
Not Jordan’s stream, nor death’s cold flood,
Should fright us from the shore.

I. Watts, arr./Ira D. Sankey
