1 Just beyond the border land, behold a city bright,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?
Shadows never dim the skies, for Jesus is the light,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?

Refrain:
Land of perfect peace, bright and fadeless day,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?
Jesus is the light, Jesus is the way,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?

2 Thro’ its gates of shining pearl can come no taint of sin,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?
Pain or death or falling tear can have no place within,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there? [Refrain]

3 Blessed home in love prepared for all the Saviour’s own,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?
There the friends of earth shall meet and sing before the throne,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there? [Refrain]
