Representative Text

1 Over on the other side of Jordan,
Yonder in the land of endless day
When the Master calls us from earth’s darkness
We shall sing His wondrous praise for aye.

Refrain:
Bye and bye, bye and bye,
We’re going home to glory bye and bye,
Bye and bye, bye and bye,
We’re going home to glory bye and bye.

2 In the Father’s house are many mansions
Pearly gates are there and streets of gold,
Best of all, our wonderful Redeemer,
Shall our longing eyes at last behold. [Refrain]

3 When we meet the wonderful Redeemer,
When our sheafs of golden grain we bring,
When we hear His “well done faithful servant,”
Joyfully we reign with Christ our king. [Refrain]

4 We will journey onward with rejoicing,
Trusting when we cannot understand,
Bye and bye we’ll see how God has led us
Thro’ the light and dark with loving hand. [Refrain]
