1 Oh! Master, we are weary
With men’s cold hearts and pride;
How long, ere Thou wilt take us
Unto the other side?
Unto the other side!
Unto the other side!
How long ere Thou wilt take us
Unto the other side?

2 They care not to come with us
And Thy disciples be;
They silently deride us—
Oh, let us cross the sea.
Unto the other side!
Unto the other side!
Oh, let us cross the bright sea
Unto the other side!

3 Bright fields lie there before us,
The waters are not wide,
And friends and rest and Heaven
Are on the other side.
Are on the other side!
Are on the other side!
And friends and rest and Heaven
Are on the other side!

4 "Work patiently, My children,"
His calm, sweet voice replied,
"At night you shall pass over,
Unto the other side."
Unto the other side!
Unto the other side!
At night you shall pass over,
Unto the other side.
