Lyrics

Oft our hearts are filled with sorrow,
As we journey day by day;
But when we get home up yonder,
God will wipe all tears away.

Refrain

O, the joy we’ll know in Heaven!
Free from toil and pain and care;
We will sing God’s praise forever,
And we’ll know no sorrow there.

Here our burdens oft are heavy,
And the road is rough and steep;
But our blessèd Lord will guide us,
And His promise true will keep.

Refrain

Precious friends who have departed
From this weary vale of tears,
Will be waiting there to greet us,
Safe at home thro’ endless years.

Refrain

O, ’twill be a grand reunion,
When we reach that homeland fair;
There’ll be peace and joy forever,
For there’ll be no sorrow there.
