Representative Text

1 Just over the river, just over the river,
I’m told is the city of God;
Its gates are of pearl, and its streets are of gold,
And by glorified beings they’re trod.
And Jesus, my Savior, has gone to that city,
A place for His own to prepare;
In the house of the Father the mansions are many,
And one is awaiting me there.

Just over the river,
That beautiful city I see;
Just over the river,
A place in that city for me.

2 Just over the river, just over the river,
The city that knoweth no night;
It needeth no sun, neither needeth the moon,
For the glory of God is its light.
In that city are loved ones awaiting my coming,
Expectant they stand on the shore;
O when shall I enter my mansion in Heaven,
A pilgrim to roam nevermore? [Refrain]
