Full Text

1 There’s a home beyond death’s river,
Where sad partings come no more,
And if true to Christ our Saviour
He will guide us to that shore.

Refrain:
Are you going to that country,
To that home so bright and fair?
Will you meet me, surely meet me
Will you meet me over there?

2 There our conflicts will be over,
When we reach that land so blest,
When o’er sin and death we’ve triumphed,
And have entered into rest. [Refrain]

3 There in that bright land of Eden,
Robed in garments pure and white,
Stand the blood washed of all ages,
Who from earth have taken flight. [Refrain]

4 There the tree of life is blooming,
By the waters pure and sweet;
There we’ll join the angels’ singing,
Bending low at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]
