Representative Text

1 Beyond the hills, beyond the sea,
Beyond the sunset’s gold,
Bright mansions wait for you and me
With glories all untold!

Refrain:
A home of peace and love and light,
When scenes of earth are past!
O may our feet be led aright,
To walk those streets at last!

2 No trace of sorrow enters there,
All tears are wiped away:
There is no sickness, pain, or care
Within that Land of Day! [Refrain]

3 With joyful eyes we then shall meet
The loved for which we long,
With them we’ll walk the golden streets
And sing the glad new song! [Refrain]
