Representative Text

1 Send me a message from heaven, I pray;
Tell me it’s only just over the way;
Tell me I’ll find you the same as of yore,
Waiting with those who have gone on before.

Refrain:
Only this answer I hear as of old,
Only this word through the centuries told,—
Blest is that city, no other so fair;
God and your loved ones are waiting you there.

2 Send me a message from heaven tonight,
Only a word from the city of light;
Oh, will your voice and the clasp of your hand
Welcome me home to the beautiful land? [Refrain]

3 Roses that grow by the river of God,
Lilies that bloom where the angels have trod,—
Shall we some day on that beautiful shore
Gather the flow’rs that will fade nevermore? [Refrain]
