Our Promised Land


He has known your walking through this great wilderness (Deuteronomy 2:7; HNV).

1. There’s nothing else
We need to do in death:
Our work is done.

2. There’s nowhere else
We need to go:
Our race on earth is run.

3. There’s no one else
We need to see but God,
Who takes our hand,

4. And gently draws us
Back into his soul:
Our Promised Land.
