There’s a bright, happy home over yonder,
On the bright eternal shore;
Where the saints shall dwell with Jesus,
All the glad for ever more.

Refrain

We’ll meet with our Savior in the morning,
That Savior full of love;
We’ll dwell with our king,
And forevermore we’ll sing
In that happy home above.

There’s a bright, happy home over yonder,
Where the crystal waters glide;
Where the tree of life forever,
Blooms by the silver tide.

Refrain

There’s a bright, happy home over yonder,
Where the song shall never cease;
Where the saints shall dwell forever
With the Lord in perfect peace.
