Beyond the stars

Representative Text

1 I love this world of beauty,
With its shadowy, stately trees,
The moving of calm rivers,
And the majesty of seas;
But mine eyes have seen a vision
Which no earth-born shadow mars;
A vision of the splendor
Of my home beyond the stars.

Beautiful home! Beautiful home!
Which no shadow ever mars;
Beautiful home! Beautiful home!
O my home beyond the stars.

2 I love this world of music,
The sighing of the trees,
The melody of songsters,
And the drowsy hum of bees;
But my raptured ears have listened
To the song 'twixt prison bars
Of the overflowing music
Of my home beyond the stars. [Chorus]

3 Ah! sweet to me my sojourn,
Tho' I know its earthly grief,
The sympathy that blesses,
And the help that gives relief;
But my longing soul is hearing
A voice that heals the scars;
My Saviour's loving welcome
To his home beyond the stars. [Chorus]
