Representative Text

1 When with the Savior we enter the glory-land,
Won't it be wonderful there?
Ended the troubles and cares of the story-land,
Won't it be wonderful there?

Refrain:
Won't it be wonderful there,
Having no burdens to bear?
Joyously singing with heart-bells all ringing,
O won't it be wonderful there?

2 Walking and talking with Christ, the supernal ONe,
Won't it be wonderful there?
Praising, adoring the matchless eternal One,
Won't it be wonderful there? [Refrain]

3 There where the tempest will never be sweeping us,
Won't it be wonderful there?
Sure that forever the Lord will be keeping us,
Won't it be wonderful there? [Refrain]
