Representative Text

1 Come, all ye saints, to Pisgah's mountain;
Come view your home beyond the tide:
The land we love is just before us;
Soon we'll be on the other side.
O there are the bright crowns of glory,
And mansions the Saviour will give;
And they who have loved his appearing,
With him shall eternally live.

2 There endless springs of life are flowing,
There are the fields of living green;
Mansions of beauty are before them,
And the King of the saints is seen.
Soon our conflicts and toils will be ended,
We'll be tried and be tempted no more;
And the saints of all ages and nations
We shall greet on that heavenly shore.

3 Faith now beholds the flowing river,
Coming from underneath the throne;
There, too, the Saviour reigns forever,
And he'll welcome the faithful home.
Would you walk by the banks of the river,
With the friends you have loved by your side?
Would you join in the song of the angels?
Then be ready to follow your Guide.
