The Prettiest Flowers Will Be Blooming

Representative Text

1 I know there is a land of beautiful flowers,
Where we will meet again when life is o'er;
Where we will while away the endless hours
On heaven's bright eternal shore.

Refrain: The prettiest beds of flowers will be blooming
By the prettiest streets our eyes shall e'er behold,
Where the beautiful tree of life for us is waiting
By the prettiest mansions made of purest gold;
The prettiest robes and crowns we'll all be wearing
In that city four-square, beyond this world of strife,
And the prettiest songs with the angels we'll be singing
On that beautiful morning by the river of life.

2 On heaven's golden strand there'll be no more dying,
No chilling winds or tempest e'er will blow;
It is a land of love and wondrous beauty
Where fragrant flowers ever grow. [Refrain]

3 I want to meet you by that beautiful river,
On that eternal morning in the sky;
Where we will live in peace thru endless ages,
Where we will never say goodbye. [Refrain]
