Over Yonder

Representative Text

1 Come let us sing of homeland,
Down by the crystal sea;
Wonderful land where Jesus
Buildeth a mansion for me.

Over yonder, down by the crystal sea,
(down by the crystal sea,)
Over yonder, there’s where I long to be,
(There’s where I long to be,)
No more sorrow, toil, grief, nor care,
In the homeland bright and fair,
Over, over there.
Over there.

2 Water of life there floweth,
Fruit in abundant store;
Citizens of that country
Hunger and thirst never more. [Refrain]

3 Come go with me to homeland,
Jesus invites you there;
Help spread the invitation,
Tell it to men everywhere. [Refrain]
