Representative Text

1 Just beyond the silent river,
Over on the other shore,
There is resting, happy resting
For the weary, evermore.

Then the eyes that now are watching
For the morrow’s dawning ray,
Shall be opened to the splendor
Of a bright and glorious day.

2 In that golden, sunny region
There will be no throb of pain,
And the links that here are broken
We shall find in bliss again. [Refrain]

3 There with Jesus, our Redeemer
And the ransomed, we shall meet,
And with songs of rapture praise Him
As we gather at His feet. [Refrain]
