By the faith of the blest

Representative Text

1 By the faith of the blest we can see thro' the vail,
And we fear not the death angel's wand;
For our partings with loved ones on this side we hail
As a meeting with others beyond.

Oh, the happy beyond! Oh, the blissful beyond!
'Tis a home where all wanderings cease;
Where each heart to its heart shall forever respond
In a chorus of love, and of peace.

2 In the happy beyond, o'er the time ocean's firth,
We shall meet all our friends gone before;
And shall wait with a welcome for those upon earth,
To the happy beyond evermore. [Chorus]

3 Oh, what comfort and joy to the sorrowing heart,
As we journey on life's rugged road,
Is that "Happy Beyond," where no friends ever part,
In that blessed eternal abode. [Chorus]
