There is a Land of Pure Delight


There is a and of pure delight / Where Saints immortal reign / Infinite day excludes the night / And pleasures banish pain There, everlasting spring abides / And never withering flowers / Death, like a narrow sea, divides / This heav'nly land from ours

Sweet fields beyond the swelling flood / Stand dressed in living green / So, to the Jews old
Canaan stood / While Jordan rolled between

But timorous mortals start and shrink / To cross this narrow sea / And linger, shiv'ring on the brink / And fear to launch away

O could we make our doubts remove / Those gloomy thoughts that rise And see the Canaan
that we love / With unbeclouded eyes

Could we climb where Moses stood / And view the landscape o'er / Not Jordan's stream, nor
death cold flood / Should fright us from the shore
