If you know where to get a good pho­to of Ma­shaw (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Beyond the sea that rolls be­tween
This world of care and things un­seen,
There is a land of end­less day
Where all our tears are wiped away.


Beyond the sea, the rest­less roll­ing sea,
I hear my loved ones gent­ly call­ing me;
I soon shall leave the trou­bled shores of time
And dwell for aye in that ce­les­ti­al clime.

Beyond the sea lies Heav’n’s fair shore,
Where all of sin and earth are o’er;
Where care and toil have passed away;
Where wea­ry feet no more shall stray.


No more shall beat the flood of years
Across these forms so frail and worn;
No more shall roll the sea of tears
Across these hearts by ang­uish torn.


Beyond the sea there’s rest and peace;
There Je­sus bids His child­ren come;
Beyond the sea the tem­pests cease;
There an­gels sing a wel­come home.
