O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

The Better Land

Gurdon authored the original text and this hymn's lyrics were arranged from that work, presumably by Towner.

There is a land mine eyes have seen
In visions of enraptured tho't.
So bright that all wich spreads between
Is with It's radiant glories fraught.

A land upon whose blissful shore
There rests no shadow, falls no stain;
There those who meet shall part no more,
And those long parted meet again.

Its skies are not like earthly skies,
With varying hues of shade and light;
It hath no need of suns to rise
To dissipate the gloom of night.

There sweeps no desolating wind
Across the calm, serene abode;
The wand'rer there a home may find
Within the Paradise of God.

Oh, land of love, of joy and light,
Thy glories gild earth's darkest night;
Thy tranquil shores we too shall see,
When day shall break, and shadows flee.
