October 2013 Hymn Study

The Ambleside Online Hymn rotation for October 2013 is a song called "There is a Land Far, Far Away".

This is a very sweet song. I can't find a YouTube video that has the lyrics flashing across the screen while they sing the song, so here are the lyrics:

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.

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.

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.


Now, I'm probably just ornery, but I really like to look for hymns that are singing TOO the Lord, not just ABOUT the Lord, even though both types of hymns have their place. So, for my son this month I will also be covering How Great Thou Art, sung by Chris Rice:
