lyrics

The sands of time are sinking,
The dawn of heaven breaks;
The summer morn I’ve sighed for
The fair, sweet morn awakes:
Dark, dark had been the midnight

But dayspring is at hand,
And glory, glory dwelleth
In Imanuel’s land.

I’ve wrestled on towards Heaven,
'Gainst storm, and wind, and tide

Now, like a weary traveller, 

That leaneth on his guide,

Amid the shades of evening,

While sinks life's ling'ring sand,

I hail the glory dawning

From Immanuel's land.
 
Oh! Christ He is the Fountain,

The deep sweet well of love!

The streams on earth I've tasted, 

More deep I'll drink above:

There, to an ocean fulness,
His mercy doth expand,

And glory—glory dwelleth

In Immanuel's land.

Oh! I am my Belovèds,

And my Beloved is mine!

He brings a poor vile sinner 

Into His "House of wine."

I stand upon His merit,

I know no other stand,

Not e'en where glory dwelleth

In Immanuel's land.
 
I shall sleep sound in Jesus,
Fill'd with His likeness rise,

To live and to adore Him, 

To see Him with these eyes.

'Tween me and resurrection

But Paradise doth stand;

Then—then for glory dwelling

In Immanuel's land!
