1 Over the river faces I see,
Fair as the morning, looking for me;
Free from their sorrow, grief and despair,
Waiting and watching patiently there.
Looking this way, yes, looking this way,
Loved ones are waiting, looking this way;
Fair as the morning, bright as the day,
Dear ones in glory, looking this way.
2 Father and mother safe in that vale,
Watch for the boatman, wait for the sail;
Bearing the loved ones over the tide
Into the harbor, near to their side. [Refrain]
3 Brother and sister gone to that clime,
Waiting for the others coming some time;
Safe with the angels, whiter than snow,
Watching for dear ones waiting below. [Refrain]
4 Sweet little darling, light of the home,
Looking for someone, beckoning come;
Bright as a sunbeam, pure as the dew.
Anxiously looking, mother, for you. [Refrain]
5 Jesus the Savior, bright Morning Star,
Looking for lost ones straying afar;
Hear the glad message, why will you roam?
Jesus is calling, "Sinner, come home." [Refrain]
