Representative Text

1. There is a paradise of rest
On yonder tranquil shore,
Beyond the shadow and the gloom of night,
Where toil and tears are o’er.

Meet me there, oh, meet me there,
At the dawning of that morning bright and fair;
Meet me there, oh, meet me there,
In the land beyond the river meet me there.

2. There is a city crowned with light,
Its joy no tongue can tell;
For they who enter shall behold the King,
And in His presence dwell. [Refrain]

3. There is a crown laid up on high
That Christ the Lord will give
To those who patiently His coming wait,
And for His glory live. [Refrain]

4. Oh, then be faithful unto death,
Press on the heavenly way,
That we may enter through the gates of life
To realms of endless day. [Refrain]
