Representative Text

1 By and by we’ll walk in light supernal,
‘Mid the scenes of beauty ever vernal,
While our souls are thrilled with joys eternal,
In that country over yonder.

Refrain:
Some sweet day where living waters flow,
Wearing garments whiter than the snow,
Saved by grace, a joy divine we’ll know,
In that country over yonder.

2 There are mansions fair beyond all telling,
Where the ransomed of all climes are dwelling,
With their praise of Jesus loudly swelling
In that country over yonder. [Refrain]

3 Oh, how sweet where sorrow cometh never,
Where love’s tender ties no death can sever,
Safe with Jesus to abide forever
In that country over yonder. [Refrain]
