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!
