A Better Country

I seek a better country
that is, an heavenly
where sweet peace and righteousness
shall reign eternally.

I seek a better country
a hallowed, celestial sod
where Jesus only does rule
revered by all as God.

I seek a better country
where never is shed one tear
pain and suffering unknown
for sin can’t enter there.

I seek a better country
of its splendors I have heard
prepared by the Savior returning
for those who obey His Word.

I seek a better country
where the forever fashion will be
putting off this veil of flesh
to dress in immortality.

I must enter into that country
whatever sacrifice I must make
for only then will my soul be satisfied
when in His likeness I awake.
