Representative Text

1 Just beyond this vale of tears,
Where the cares of life annoy;
Just beyond a few short years,
There is everlasting joy.

Just beyond, just beyond,
All our cares will be gone;
Just beyond, just beyond,
We shall rest just beyond.

2 Friends will be reunited be,
No one ever will despond,
Souls from sorrow will be free,
In that homeland just beyond. [Refrain]

3 Angel voices sweetly blend,
Singing songs of love and praise;
Rapture is without an end,
Just beyond these pilgrim days. [Refrain]
