Representative Text

1 O, have you not heard of a beautiful shore,
Where time ceases never, and night comes no more?
There joy, sweetly reigning, we'll ever be blest,
Where pilgrims may dwell in that homeland of rest.

Chorus:
That beautiful shore,
Is the home of the blest,
We'll sever no more,
In that beautiful land of sweet rest.

2 That beautiful home is for you and for me,
There's bliss in its mansions, its walls I can see,
There Jesus of Nazareth we can behold,
The King of all kingdoms, we'll come to his fold. [Chorus]

3 How sweet it will be on that beautiful shore,
Where sorrow and parting shall meet us no more?
"With songs and with honors," we'll march to that land,
To meet the dear loved ones, that glorified band. [Chorus]

4 O yes, I have heard of that beautiful shore,
Where time ceases never, and night comes no more;
There Jesus is reigning, we'll ever be blest,
We'll sever no more in that sweet land of rest. [Chorus]
