In the Land of Fadeless Day

Once in a while, my spirit sings and it moves from my subconsciousness to my consciousness. This hymn has been lurking in my subconscious mind and has now find expression. Join me sing.

In the land of fadeless day
Lines the city four-square;
It shall never pass away,
And there is no night there.


God shall wipe away all tears;
There’s no death, no pain, nor fears;
And they count not time by years,
For there is no night there.

All the gates of pearl are made
In the city four-square;
All the streets with gold are laid,
And there is no night there.


And the gates shall never close
To the city four-square;
There life’s crystal river flows,
And there is no night there.


There they need no sunshine bright,
In the city four-square;
For the Lamb is all the light,
And there is no night there.m
