1. When we think of earth’s trials and cares,
And the tears that our eyelids bedew,
And are told they’re in Heaven unknown,
It seems just too good to be true.

Refrain
But is it too good to be true?
Oh, is it too good to be true?
When we think of the wonderful love of our Lord,
There is nothing too good to be true.

2. When we think how as sinners we’re lost,
And await fearful punishment due,
And are told of His wonderful cross,
It seems just too good to be true. [Refrain]

3. When we think of the sufferings of death,
And the grave ever waiting in view,
But are told how Christ conquered them all,
It seems just too good to be true. [Refrain]

4. When we think of our loved ones of yore,
How death gathered from me and from you,
But are told that we’ll meet them once more,
It seems just too good to be true. [Refrain]
