To That Summer Land Up Yonder


To that summer land up yonder
Where the angels ever sing
Hallelujahs to the Saviour,
Sweet hosannahs to the King;
We are marching swiftly onward,
Guided by a Father’s hand,
Thro’ this world of sin and sorrow
To that happy summer land

Chorus:
Oh, the joy when we get there,
Golden crowns of life to wear,
In that happy land so fair,
In that summer land up yonder.

To that summer land up yonder
Some are going ev’ry day,
And the time is drawing nearer
When we, too, shall go away;
We are going straight to Jesus,
There to join the ransom’d band,
We will praise His name for ever
In that happy summer land. [Chorus]

In that summer land up yonder
There’s a place prepared for all
Who are trusting in the Saviour,
Who will listen to His call;
And the happy time is coming
When the Lord shall give command,
And we’ll leave this world for ever
For that happy summer land. [Chorus]
