There is a happy land,
Far, far away.
Where saints in glory stand,
Bright, bright as day.
O how they sweetly sing,
Worthy is our Saviour King,
Loud let His praises ring,
Praise, praise for aye.

Come to the happy land,
Come, come away.
Why will you doubting stand?
Why yet delay?
O we shall happy be,
When from sin and sorrow free,
Lord we shall live with thee,
Blest, blest for aye.
