1 Oh, won’t that be glory,
When over the sea,
The loved will be waiting and watching for me,
Oh, won’t that be glory,
The clasp of the band,
Awaiting for me in that beautiful land.

Oh, won’t that be glory,
To tell the old story,
And join with the ransomed glad praises to bring!
Beyond the dark river,
To dwell there forever,
Oh, won’t that be glory, with Jesus my King!

2 Oh, won’t that be glory,
The gates of pure gold,
Ajar that the faithful may enter the fold,
Oh, won’t that be glory,
That radiant shore,
Athrong with the loved and the saved gone before. [Refrain]

3 Oh, won’t that be glory,
Earth’s sorrows all done,
To shine as the beautiful stars in His crown,
Oh, won’t that be glory,
What rapture is mine,
To dwell in the sunlight of glory divine. [Refrain]
