Representative Text

1 No mortal eye that land hath seen,
Beyond, beyond the river;
Its smiling valleys, hills so green,
Beyond, beyond the river.
Its shores are coming nearer,
The skies are growing clearer,
Each day it seemeth dearer,
Blessed land beyond the river.

We’ll stand the storm, we’ll stand the storm,
Its rage is almost over,
We’ll anchor in the harbor soon,
In the land beyond the river.

2 That glorious day will not be done,
Beyond, beyond the river;
When we’ve the crown and kingdom won,
Beyond, beyond the river.
There is eternal pleasure,
And joys that none can measure,
For those who have their treasure,
In the land beyond the river. [Chorus]

3 When shall we look from Zion’s hill,
Beyond, beyond the river;
With endless bliss our hearts shall thrill,
Beyond, beyond the river.
There angels bright are singing,
Where golden harps are ringing,
We ne’er shall cease our singing
In the land beyond the river. [Chorus]
