I have letters from my Father

In my hand, in my hand

Written by my elder brothers

They are grand, they are grand.

They were written overseas

They are full of love to me

I am glad as I can be

In this land, in this land

I'm as glad as I can be, in this land.

 

Father told me in these letters

They are grand, they are grand

That I could make myself no better

In this land, in this land.

Then I cried, what shall I do

For I have not read them through

Will they make me over new

In this land, in this land.

 

Then I read the wonderous story

It is grand, It is grand

How the Lord came down from glory

To this land, to this land.

How He hung upon a tree

Shed His blood for you and me

And His blood now makes me free

It is grand, it is grand.

 

I'm a stranger to this nation

In this land, in this land

They don't know my situation

It is grand, it is grand.

Father's house is full of gold

I have wealth that can't be told

Where my friends never will grow old

In that land, in that land.

 

 

Death is called a dreadful monster

In this land, in this land

When He calls, I shall not answer

In this land, in this land.

I shall leave at the break of day

Death shall find the empty clay

And you won't know what they'll say

It is grand, it is grand.

 

I am not afraid of dying

In this land, in this land

I can shout while friends are crying

It is grand, it is grand.

I can shout and sing and pray

And my soul can hardly stay

I am glad as I can be

It is grand, it is grand.
