Representative Text

1 I am looking beyond the darkness
Gath’ring so oft around me here;
And a blessed, a holy vision
Lends to my soul sweet cheer.

Refrain:
I am looking beyond my toiling,
Waiting to hear the Lord say, Come,
Then with him I shall rest forever
Safe in my heav’nly home.

2 I am looking beyond the pathways
Often so rough for weary feet,
To the rapture of pure redeem’d ones
Treading the golden street. [Refrain]

3 I am looking beyond sad parting,
Trials of life so hard to bear,
To the meeting in God’s fair city;
Sorrow comes never there. [Refrain]

4 I am looking beyond the earth-life
Soon with its cares to close for me;
And by faith, in the realms eternal
Glories untold I see. [Refrain]
