1 Many friends have passed over the river,
And are safe in the heavenly fold;
They have passed from this life with its shadows
To the land where they never grow old.

Refrain:
Where they never grow old,
No, never grow old,
To the land where they never grow old;
They are safe in those mansions eternal,
In the land where they never grow old.

2 We have seen them depart from our presence,
While their forms were before us so cold;
But we hope in the future to find them
In the land where they never grow old. [Refrain]

3 Now the father and mother are waiting
In the beautiful city of gold
For the gathering there of the children
To the land where they never grow old. [Refrain]

4 And the sweet little rosebud that left us
For a home in the beautiful fold,
It is calling the father and mother
To the land where they never grow old. [Refrain]
