11946. Waiting To Welcome Us There

1 On that shore, on that bright golden shore,
Where the darkness of night is unknown;
Where the bright angels stand evermore,
Glory-crowned at the Father’s great throne;
They are waiting to welcome us there,
To the joys and eternal delight,
Of a home in that mansion so fair,
Where earth’s sorrows shall fade from our sight.

Refrain:
They are waiting, they are waiting,
They are waiting to welcome us there.
They are waiting, they are waiting,
They are waiting to welcome us there.

2 By and by we shall rest in that land,
With the loved and the lost gone before;
By and by we will join that glad band,
And hosannas will sing evermore;
Heaven’s king in His beauty we’ll see,
And the wealth of that city unrolled,
And O what a glad day ’twill be,
When we stand in that city of gold. [Refrain]

3 Every day we are nearing the shore,
All the sorrows of earth soon shall cease;
We will soon hear the dip of the oar,
Soon repose in that haven of peace;
O how happy are they who have gone
To that realm of eternity fair!
They are waiting, their pilgrimage done,
They are waiting to welcome us there. [Refrain]
