Representative Text

1 This world of strife is not our home;
We’re bound for the evergreen shore,
That land of beauty where lov’d ones have gone,
Our lov’d ones forevermore.

Refrain:
Rest, rest! Forever at home,
Where pain and distress shall be o’er,
We yearn to be free in those realms to roam,
Our home on the evergreen shore.

2 They beckon on our way along!
We press for the evergreen shore;
We soon shall enter that heavenly throng
Where parting shall be no more. [Refrain]

3 There fadeless garlands ever bloom
In paths on the evergreen shore,
Where pain and sickness, bereavement and gloom,
Shall mar our repose no more. [Refrain]
