Representative Text

1 Beyond the sunshine and the rain,
Beyond the song and weary sigh,
Beyond life’s sorrow, joy and pain,
There waits a house for me on high.

Beyond the stars, beyond the sea,
Bright heav’nly mansions wait for me,
Bright heav’nly mansions waits for me;
Beyond life’s pain and mystery,
Bright heav’nly mansions wait for me,
Bright mansions wait for me.

2 I know not all the glories there,
My longing eyes at last shall see;
But O, I know those mansions fair,
With joys untold are waiting me. [Refrain]

3 O, in that heav’nly home so bright,
Is naught of sorrow, tears or pain,
There falls no shadow of the night,
There, parted friends shall meet again. [Refrain]
