Representative Text

1 There are mansions awaiting for you and for me,
When all of life’s journey is o’er,
Where the shadows of parting will nevermore be,
And time shall be counted no more.

Refrain:
Where the years shall be counted no more,
Where the years shall be counted no more,
We shall never grow old in that city of gold,
Where the years shall be counted no more.

2 There the glory of Jesus drives darkness away,
And gives us the springtime of youth.
Where the Saviour forever makes endless our day,
In heavenly gladness and truth. [Refrain]

3 There are blessings unmeasured beyond the bright blue
That fill all the heavenly shore.
There is glory eternal where live all the true,
Where years shall be counted no more, [Refrain]

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
