Representative Text

1 Faith discerns a country brighter than day,
It is free from earthly sorrow and care;
With my journey ended and my battle won,
I shall rest in mansions built over there.

Over there! Over there! When my work here is done,
I shall go to that land so beautiful and fair;
Over there! Over there! O I long for the joy
And the peace of the home over there.

2 Just beyond the river flowing so still
Through the shadows veiling time’s solemn shore,
Lies the land eternal where redeemed ones dwell,
And where blight of evil comes nevermore. [Refrain]

3 In the light that shineth there from the face
Of the blessèd Savior I shall abide;
Through the endless ages saved by His shed blood,
I shall in His presence be satisfied. [Refrain]
