Representative Text

1 Just across the river,
On the golden shore,
Where the crystal sunlight
Beams for ever more.
'Mid the heav'nly bowers,
'Mid the fadeless bloom,
Dwell the happy children,
In their blissful home.

Would you cross the river,
To the golden shore,
Give your heart to Jesus,
He will guide you o'er.

2 Hark! the sound of voices,
'Tis the echo sweet,
Of the children singing
At the Saviour's feet;
'Tis the glorious anthem,—
Rising ever more,
Of the love that brought them
To that golden shore.

3 Jesus loves the children,
Who his praises sing;
Though they wear the earth-robe,
He is still their King:
He will gently guide them,
Till the night is o'er;
Then they'll join the chorus
On the golden shore.
