1 Beyond these dear hills
We shall soon pass away,
A bright, heav’nly country to view;
Where Jesus awaits
At the pearly white gates,
I’d like to live there with you.

Refrain:
I’d like to live there,
I mean to live there,
With Jesus our Savior so true;
There safe in the fold
Where the streets are all gold,
I’d like to live there with you.

2 The years are so many
To spend in that home,
And happiness there, ever new,
O won’t you prepare
That bright home now to share?
I’d like to live there with you. [Refrain]

3 O come to the Savior,
And worship Him now,
For soon you must bid friends adieu;
Lest Jesus pass by
And will hear not your cry,
I’d like to live there with you. [Refrain]

4 We’ve passed many milestones
Together down here;
Up there, why not pass them anew?
And sing songs of love
In that city above,
I’d like to live there with you. [Refrain]
