1 When the cares of life are ended,
And our harvest days are o’er;
When the veil of time is lifted,
And we meet to part no more,—

Refrain:
There with all the saints in glory,
What a song we there shall sing,
At the feet of our Redeemer,
When our golden sheaves to him we bring.

2 We shall hear the blessed welcome,
When before his throne we bow,
And receive the crown of promise,
That his love is keeping now. [Refrain]

3 In that home of fadeless beauty,
Night and clouds will pass away,
And our eyes will see the splendor
Of a long eternal day. [Refrain]

4 In that home of peerless glory,
Every throb of pain shall cease;
Kindred souls that there were severed,
There shall dwell in perfect peace. [Refrain]
