    Verse 1
    In this world there are burdens we must bear,
    And our eyes are made wet and dim with tears;
    There's no grief, neither sorrow over there,
    In that land where there are no days nor years

    Chorus
    In that land where there are no days nor years,
    Neither sorrow nor anguish or tears;
    We shall dwell there in peace and our joys ne'er shall cease
    In that land where there are no days nor years

    Verse 2
    Though we toil, oft our labour seems in vain,
    We have faith though no fruit our visions cheer,
    But the Lord will all mystery make plain,
    In that land where there are no days nor years

    Chorus
    In that land where there are no days nor years,
    Neither sorrow nor anguish or tears;
    We shall dwell there in peace and our joys ne'er shall cease
    In that land where there are no days nor years

    Verse 3
    So we smile as we labour day by day,
    And forget all our sorrows, griefs and fears,
    For when all earthly things have passed away,
    We shall dwell where there are no days nor years

    Chorus
    In that land where there are no days nor years,
    Neither sorrow nor anguish or tears;
    We shall dwell there in peace and our joys ne'er shall cease
    In that land where there are no days nor years
