Representative Text

1 When the evening shadows gather,
As we near life's setting sun;
Sweet to know we're homeward going,
When our work on earth is done.

When we come to cross the river,
Knowing death is just a dream;
There the Savior will be waiting,
Waiting at the silent stream.

2 In this life there's disappointments,
Comes to one and all, we know;
In God's word 'tis plainly written,
Thus he planned it to be so. [Refrain]

3 Loved ones just across the river,
We shall see and we shall know;
And we'll praise the Lord our Savior,
That in love He planned it so. [Refrain]
