In Yonder Skies

Representative Text

1 In yonder skies there is a place,
where all may find sweet rest;
There God will show His smiling face,
To all the good and blest!

Refrain:
There is a home in yonder skies,
Where the saints will rejoice evermore;
There sweetest pleasure never dies,
O what joy when life is o'er!

2 Jehovah reigns supreme on high,
And all is peace and love;
The time is swiftly drawing nigh,
When we shall soar above. [Refrain]

3 There's naught above but perfect bliss,
Contentment never dies;
That region far surpassing this,
'Tis heav'n in yonder skies. [Refrain]
