In The Land of Fadeless Day (No Night There) ~ hymn

This week our hymn has been In The Land of Fadeless Day, also known as No Night There. It is a very beautiful, almost haunting melody that has a much sadder sound to me than the joyful words that are set to this melody.

What beautiful thought of the heaven, the city, prepared for us where day never fades, where the beauty will not pass away. The description of the city should make anyone desire to be in this place – gates of pearl, streets laid with gold, no night, a crystal river, but beat of all? No need for sunshine because the Lamb, Jesus, is there and He is the light. He is the only light we need.

God cares so much for us. He wipes away our tears, as the chorus states. He has created a place for us that is so beautiful, so pure, so full of hope that none of the worries, fears, and pains we have on this earth exist. What a lovely place. There is no night there.

God has give us such a clear set of expectations to be able to go to this amazing place. He states things clearly in His word. If you are in Him, you will be with Him. Search His word. Find those things that He says are required to spend eternity with Him. I hope you are in Him, in His kingdom, so that we can walk those streets paved with gold, view those pearly gates, and get to spend eternity singing His praises together. I hope to see you there.

At Home.


In The Land of Fadeless Day (No Night There)

words: John R. Clements, 1899
music: Hart P. Danks, 1899

1 In the land of fadeless day
lies 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.

2 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. [Refrain]

3 And the gates shall never close
in the city four-square,
there life’s crystal river flows,
and there is no night there. [Refrain]

4 There thy need no sunshine bright,
in that city four-square;
for the Lamb is all the light,
and there is no night there. [Refrain]

    This is a beautiful song and I remember our church singing it as an opening hymn from time to time on a Sunday morning

        Revelation 21 gives us a glimpse of what we will see when we enter heaven; my God, what a day that will be!
