Representative Text

1 We shall meet in that beautiful land,
On the banks of the bright golden shore,
And with all the redeemed spirit-band,
There with Jesus to reign ever more

In a bright, happy home, we shall meet,
In that beautiful, beautiful land,
In a bright, happy home we shall meet,
In that beautiful, beautiful land.

2 Over there on the bright azure plains,
Where the river of life sweetly flows;
For the Saviour eternally reigns,
And the beautiful gates never close. [Chorus]

3 Blessed Jesus has gone to prepare
Us a crown that is brighter than day;
Then forever we’ll dwell with Him there,
And His hand shall wipe all tears away. [Chorus]

4 There no sorrow shall e’er taint the air,
Where God dwells evil never can come;
And no weeping will break on the ear,
When the day of life’s turmoil is done. [Chorus]
