There is a happy land far, far away

When I was a kid, I remember a hymn -
"There is a happy land far, far away
Where saints in glory stand bright, bright as day
Oh how they ?sweetly? sing ... ....

Is there an old-timer out there who can complete the words to this joyous old tune?

Hi there. I guess I'm getting to be an old-timer :) Here are the lyrics:

1.
There is a happy land, far, far away,
Where saints in glory stand, bright, bright as day.
Oh, how they sweetly sing, worthy is our Savior King,
Loud let His praises ring, praise, praise for aye.

2.
Come to that happy land, come, come away;
Why will ye doubting stand, why still delay?
Oh, we shall happy be, when from sin and sorrow free,
Lord, we shall live with Thee, blest, blest for aye.

3.
Bright, in that happy land, beams every eye;
Kept by a Father's hand, love cannot die.
Oh, then to glory run; be a crown and kingdom won;
And, bright, above the sun, we reign for aye.

God bless!

Steve - thanks for the words to "Far, Far Away". You're a good Bud! Hey, Steve. Have I been working too long? Am I losing my marbles? Immediately above the "Message" entry box, the sixth face from the left, the lime green little nipper with his mouth open - I could swear that just a moment ago he was alternately opening and closing his mouth at me. I've been watching him now for ten minutes and he's not doing diddley. Tell me I don't need a shrink. I need to hear that right now ... from anyone.

Hey Don't worry, you're not going bonkers. The little green guy does stick his tongue out at people He does it every 5 seconds or so, but I think he stops after a while :)

Take care,
Steve
