And cast a wistful eye
To Canaan's fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.
Chorus: There'll be no sorrowing there,
There'll be no sorrowing there,
In heaven above, where all is love,
There'll be no sorrowing there.
All o'er those wide extended plains
Shine one eternal day,
Where God, the son, forever reigns
And scatters night away.
Oh, the transported raptured scene
That rises to our sight!
Sweet fields arrayed in living green
And rivers of delight.
