Lyrics

Beyond the hills, beyond the sea,
Beyond the sunset’s gold,
Bright mansions wait for you and me
With glories all untold!

Refrain

A home of peace and love and light,
When scenes of earth are past!
O may our feet be led aright,
To walk those streets at last!

No trace of sorrow enters there,
All tears are wiped away:
There is no sickness, pain or care
Within that land of day!

Refrain

With joyful eyes we then shall meet
The loved for which we long,
With them we’ll walk the golden streets
And sing the glad new song!
