Representative Text

1 When life is ended and I cross the narrow sea,
When sets the golden sun of life for me,
I’ll cast my anchor near the golden, shining shore,
And dwell with Jesus there forevermore.

Refrain:
I shall have an abundant entrance
In thro’ the gates of glory,
When I have reached the other shore,
I shall have an abundant entrance
In thro’ the gates of glory,
When I shall dwell forevermore.

2 Tho’ rough the voyage of my life has often been,
Storms cannot reach me when I enter in
To that fair city of the ransomed and the blest,
There from my labors I shall find sweet rest. [Refrain]

3 In yonder city many loved ones for me wait,
There’ll be a welcome when I reach that gate,
Angelic hosts will strike their gladdest note of song,
To swell the chorus of the ransomed throng. [Refrain]
