Beati quorum via integra est, qui ambulant in lege Domini.

Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.

My brethren, I have found
A land that doth abound
With fruit as sweet as honey;
The more I eat I find
The more I am inclined
To shout and sing Hosanna.

My soul doth long to go
Where I may fully know
The glory of my Savior;
Mid sweetness and the strife,
I’ll live a joyful life;
I’m going to sing forever.

Perhaps you think me wild
Or simple as a child;
I am a child of glory.
I am born from above,
My soul is filled with love,
I love to tell the story.

My soul doth long to go
Where I may fully know
The glory of my Savior;
Mid sweetness and the strife,
I’ll live a joyful life;
I’m going to sing forever.

My soul now sits and sings
And practices its wings,
And contemplates the hour
When the messenger shall say,
“Come, quit this house of clay
And with bright angels tower.”

My soul doth long to go
Where I may fully know
The glory of my Savior.
Mid sweetness and the strife,
I’ll live a joyful life;
I’m going to sing forever.

Sweet rivers of redeeming love
Lie just before my eyes,
Had I the pinions of a dove,
I’d to those rivers fly.
I’d rise superior to my pain,
With joy outstrip the wind;
I’d cross cold Jordan’s stormy waves,
And leave the world behind.

A few more days or years at most
My troubles will be o’er;
I hope to join the heavenly host
On Canaan’s happy shore.
My raptured soul shall drink and feast
In love’s unbounded sea,
The glorious hope of endless rest
Is ravishing to me.

O come, my Savior, come away, 
And bear me through the sky; 
Nor let Thy chariot wheels delay, 
But quickly draw Thou nigh. 
Then I shall join the angel throng 
And circle round Thy throne; 
I’ll sing through all the ages long, 
And joy to be Thine own.
