There lies a land beyond these clouds - Strangers and pilgrims
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Strangers and pilgrims.

1. There lies a land beyond these clouds,
  above the star-set blue,
whose beauty faith alone has seen,
  still veiled from mortal view.
Already there these hearts have found
  a resting-place of love;
our hopes have gone within the veil,
  our treasure is above.
          We love to call it heaven,
          the home of the forgiven,
          the seat of holy rest,
          the dwelling of the blest. (PDF - Midi)

2. Thither we turn our pilgrim feet,
  and upward daily rise;
upon its glory, yet unveiled,
  faith feasts its pilgrim eyes.
The Lord himself its glowing fields
  with golden gladness fills;
bright with his brightest splendour shine
  the everlasting hills:
          We love to call it heaven,
          the home of the forgiven,
          the seat of holy rest,
          the dwelling of the blest.

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of the Nativity, 1879, 83-84.
