Lyrics

Dreams of a land mine eyes shall see,
Sweep thro’ my soul tonight;
Land where the glorified will be,
Robed in eternal light.

Refrain

Oh, land, beautiful land
Where my Savior dwells,
Place of which my Bible
And the ages tell,
Oh, land, beautiful land
Where sweet music swells,
Won’t you meet me there?

Dreams of the songs
Mine eyes shall hear,
Flood all my soul tonight;
Songs whispering words
Of hope and cheer,
Known in the song-land bright.

Refrain

Dream of all dreams when I awake,
And look upon His face;
Dream of all dreams,
When morn shall break,
And I am saved by grace.
