Dear brethren, I have found,
A land which doth abound,
With fruits as sweet as manna,
The more I eat I find,
The more I am inclined,
To sing and shout ďhosanna!Ē
My soul doth long to go,
Where it may fully know,
The glory of the Savior;
And as I pass along,
Iíll sing the Christianís song,
I hope to live forever.

What must this fountain be,
From which grace flows so free,
It yields both peace and pleasure;
Thereís no terrestrial bliss,
Can ever equal this,
A foretaste of my Savior.
My soul doth long to go,
Where it may fully know,
The glory of the Savior;
And as I pass along,
Iíll sing the Christianís song,
I hope to live forever.
In memory of Wiley Palmer Jones, 1844-1912
