When the voyage of life is ended

Representative Text

1. When the voyage of life is ended,
And the stormy winds shall cease,
When we step from care and sorrow
To eternal joy and peace.

Refrain:
Hallelujah, hallelujah, what a meeting!
But the best of all will be,
Our Redeemer, dear Redeemer,
In his beauty we shall see.

3. O, the pearly gates of glory,
Not ajar, but open wide,
Even now our faith beholds them,
As we near the swelling tide.
Refrain

4 Hallelujah! hallelujah!
O ye ransomed hosts above,
We are coming, we are coming,
Soon we'll join your songs of love.
Refrain
