No Burdens Yonder

Representative Text

1 No burdens yonder, not a single care,
When home is entered, not a load to bear;
No burdens yonder, all will be laid down
Before we share His glory and His throne.

Refrain:
No burdens yonder,
All sorrow past;
No burdens yonder,

2 No trials yonder, all the testing done,
The schooldays over and the prizes won;
No much-tried faith like gold in furnace heat,
The purifying will be all complete. [Refrain]

3 No toiling yonder, and no weariness,
No disappointments, and no more distress;
The future bright, the past all understood,
We’ll see that all the way He led was good. [Refrain]

4 No parting yonder, and no sad goodbyes,
No pain, no sickness, and no weeping eyes;
But, best of all, my Savior I shall see,
No cloud will come between my Lord and me. [Refrain]
