1 When I have reached earth’s borderland,
Jesus will bear me away;
Take me to sing with the ransomed band,
Happy in endless day.

Refrain:
Carried away to the realms of light,
Safe on the golden shore;
Into the summer-land ever bright
Jesus will bear me o’er.

2 City of glory so bright and fair,
City of peace above.
I shall sing praises to Jesus there,
Telling His wondrous love. [Refrain]

3 Dwelling with Jesus in glory-land,
What could I ask beside?
Singing the song of the angel-band,
Near to the Savior’s side. [Refrain]
