Representative Text

1 Beyond the everlasting hills,
Above the starry skies,
My spirit seeks the home of peace,
Where tears shall dim no eyes.

2 No shadows there shall ever fall,
Nor weary night and long;
No silver cords shall broken be
To hush the sound of song. A-men.

3 There shall I find again the love
Of those I cherished here;
And friendship's ties shall holier be,
And bonds of love more dear.

4 There shall I see thee, O my God,
Creator, Saviour, Friend;
And with angelic voices join
In worship without end.
