There's a home beyond all toil

Representative Text

1 There’s a home beyond all toil and care,
Made for all the faithful ones to share;
My departed friends, I know,
Reached that city long ago;
I am on my way to meet them there.

I am on my way to meet them there,
I am on my way to meet them there,
I shall join them by and by,
In that mansion up on high,
I am on my way to meet them there.

2 That will be a moment sweet to me,
When I join that blessed company,
When I meet my friends of yore,
On that happy golden shore,
Just beyond the intervening sea. [Refrain]

3 Then my soul shall fully comprehend
What it is to meet the long-lost friend;
All my waiting will be o’er,
I shall clasp those hands once more,
And our joy shall never have an end. [Refrain]
