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.

Refrain:
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]
