The city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.@Revelation 21:23

Brightly shines the golden light,
In our home beyond the river;
Never fails a shade of night,
There the cloudless day forever;
Sweetest music fills the air,
In our home beyond the river;
Harps of gold are ringing there,
Praises to the Lamb forever.

Refrain

Would you enter? Jesus stands
At the door with outstretched hands.

Fairest flow’rs in constant bloom,
In our home beyond the river,
Fill the air with sweet perfume,
And their beauty fadeth never;
All is beauty, sweetness, joy,
In our home beyond the river;
Love and peace without alloy,
Thrills the heav’nly heart forever.

Refrain
