Their fields beyond
Are in perspective seen
As unto Israel Canaan stood
While Jordan flowed between
 
Though wicked men and Satan strive
To keep us from that land
And frorom [from] their homes the Saints they drive
To try the Lords command
 
There all the springs of God will be
And there an end of strife
And there the righteous rising free
Shall have eternal life
 
There shall the will of God be done
And saints and Angels greet
And there when all in Christ is one
The best from worlds shall meet
 
There in the resurrection morn
The living live again
And all the children will be born
Without the sting of sin
 
How long our Father O how long
Shall that pure time delay
Come on come on ye holy throng
And bring the glorious day [p. [182]]
