Beyond the stars our loved ones wait,
And watch for us beside the gate;
They wait for me, they watch for you,
In that fair land across the blue.
Across the blue, across the blue,
From Pisgah’s height behold the view;
Friends wait for me and watch for you,
In sinless land, across the blue.
We long to join our loved ones there,
And with them breathe on Heaven’s air
The song that is forever new,
In glory land, across the blue.
When we shall reach the streets of gold,
We will our Savior’s face behold;
We’ll kiss the hand that led us thro’
To mansions fair across the blue.
Then let us work and do our best,
Soon God will take us home to rest;
For if He finds us tried and true,
We’ll live with Him across the blue.
Till then, my soul, be still and wait;
Soon thou wilt pass the pearly gate;
Then what a meeting will ensue
With those we love across the blue.
