Representative Text

1 There is no night there, but one endless day,
In that beautiful home,
Away, far away;
Just beyond the river that land I see:—
Loved ones are waiting to welcome thee.

Refrain:
There is no night there, no night there,
God is the light, there is no night there;
No night there, no night there,
God is the light, there is no night there.

2 Why are we troubled here below?
To that beautiful land we soon shall go;
Who will meet us? what shall we see,
When we get over the jasper sea? [Refrain]

3 Flow’rs are blooming on ev’ry hand,
Rivers like crystal in that beautiful land,
Music the sweetest, flowers most rare,
We’ll dwell with our Father, there is no night there. [Refrain]
