1 No shadows yonder,
Far beyond the sunset’s bars;
No shadows yonder,
Far beyond the stars;
Gates of pearl there gleaming,
Fadeless sunlight streaming,
Eyes of God are beaming,
On the loved ones there.

No shadows yonder,
All the tears are wiped away,
No shadows yonder,
Land of endless day.

2 No shadows yonder,
Land of peace, of hope and joy;
No shadows yonder,
Sin cannot annoy;
There no hearts are sighing,
There no thought of crying,
There no pain or dying,
There no dark despair. [Refrain]

3 No shadows yonder,
Christ Himself the light shall be;
No shadows yonder,
O’er the crystal sea;
There no crosses bearing,
In a great love sharing,
Crowns of glory wearing,
In that home so fair. [Refrain]
