A Far and Distant Land

There is a far and distant land

Of which we all must dream,

Where tears turn into diamonds

And laughter flows in streams,

Where children play along the shore

And dance in bright sunbeams.

Where hungers are all satisfied

And long-held wounds are healed,

Where sin and strife are but a dream

And troubled thoughts have ceased.

There is a far and distant land

To which we all must look,

And if I knew it very well

I’d write it in a book.

‘Til then while life’s strains take up time,

Our hope is in that land divine
