1 No disappointment yonder:
All hopes are there fulfilled;
No blighted prospects yonder:
All anxious thoughts are stilled.

2 No weary heart-aches yonder:
Love there is firmly sealed;
No wounded feelings yonder:
All smarting sores are healed.

3 No dark suspicions yonder:
There all are frank and free;
No morbid fancies yonder:
But perfect sympathy.

4 No restless yearnings yonder:
All, all are satisfied;
No cares or worries yonder:
All needs are well supplied.

5 No blistered, tired feet yonder,
No toil-worn trembling hand;
No wrinkled forehead yonder,
In that bright happy land.

6 No midnights over yonder,
We shall not need them there;
No burning noontides yonder,
No scorching, dazzling glare.

7 No warfare over yonder,
No battle cries shall ring;
No bloodshed over yonder,
Where Jesus Christ is king.

8 No angry billows yonder,
But one calm crystal sea;
No shipwrecks over yonder,
No dread calamity.

9 No hurtful things are yonder,
No lurking vengeful foe;
No thirst, no famine yonder,
No swift heart-rending woe.

10 No pain, no sickness yonder,
All tears are wiped away;
No death, no parting yonder—
There, life is one glad day.

11 No sin-stained garments yonder,
But blood-washed, spotless, clean;
Ah! that is why up yonder
No shade of grief is seen.

12 What is there over yonder?
No human tongue can tell—
But He our Lord is yonder,
And therefore all is well.

13 Oh! joy, to think that yonder
No mist our eyes shall dim;
For "we shall see Him" yonder,
And we shall be like Him.
