Representative Text

1 Beyond the sea, that rolls between
This world of care and things unseen,
There is a land of endless day,
Where all our tears are wiped away.

Refrain:
Beyond the sea, the restless, rolling sea,
I hear my loved ones gently calling me,
I soon shall leave the troubled shores of time
And dwell for aye in that celestial clime.

2 Beyond the sea lies heav’ns fair shore,
Where all of sin and earth are o’er;
Where care and toil have passed away;
Where weary feet no more shall stray. [Refrain]

3 No more shall beat the flood of years
Across these forms so frail and worn;
No more shall roll the sea of tears
Across these hearts by anguish torn. [Refrain]

4 Beyond the sea there’s rest and peace,
There Jesus bids his children come;
Beyond the sea the tempests cease,
There angels sing a “welcome home.” [Refrain]
