1 We’re over on the stormy side,
Dark clouds beset our way,
But just across the rolling tide
Beam shores of endless day.

Refrain:
On the other side, beyond the rolling tide,
Jesus is waiting for me,
On the golden shore,
In the grand evermore,
Loved ones are watching, for me.

2 There is another, brighter side
Of life beyond the sky,
Where sin and sorrow ne’er betide,
And loved ones never die. [Refrain]

3 Our journey here will soon be done,
We’ll enter into rest,
In yonder clime that needs no sun,—
Repose on Jesus’ breast. [Refrain]

4 Soon I shall strike those harps of gold,
Where flowers immortal bloom,
My dear Redeemer’s face behold,
And calmly rest at home. [Refrain]
