1. We are on our way to a home on high,
Over in the glory-land;
There we’ll meet and rest, in the by and by,
Over in the glory-land.

Over in the glory-land!
Over in the glory-land!
There with all the blest we shall meet and rest,
Over in the glory-land.

2. We will join the song that the ransomed sing,
Over in the glory-land
And forever praise our eternal King,
Over in the glory-land. [Refrain]

3. When the cares and trials of earth are past,
Over in the glory-land;
Jesus waits to crown us His own at last,
Over in the glory-land. [Refrain]

4. With the loved ones gone to that shining shore,
Over in the glory-land;
We shall meet, oh joy, meet to part no more,
Over in the glory-land. [Refrain]
