1 What rejoicing there will be
When beyond the silent sea
We shall gather with our loved ones over there;
How the courts of God will ring
As we loud hosannas sing
To the blessed Lord who gave us entrance there.

Chorus:
Over there, over there,
In that home beyond the river, bright and fair;
Where is never known a night,
Where the Savior is the light,
While the never-ending years are rolling on.

2 What rejoicing there will be
When the friends of earth we see,
Gathered near the throne eternal over there;
Clothed in robes of righteousness,
Whom the Savior shall confess
In the presence of the Father over there. [Chorus]

3 What rejoicing there will be
Thro’ a long eternity
When the nations shall be gathered over there;
Giving Jesus all the praise
For His wondrous works and ways
And the mansions waiting for us over there. [Chorus]
