He hath prepared…a city.@Hebrews 11:16

Andrew Grier, Jr., in New Victory, edited by Emmett S. Dean (Nashville, Tennessee: National Baptist Publishing Board, 1918), number 60 (🔊 pdf nwc).

When my work on earth is done,
I shall go at set of sun,
Over there, over there;
To that home of joy untold,
Where the streets are paved with gold,
Over there, over there.

Refrain

Over there, over there,
Lies a wondrous city bright and fair;
And from every sorrow free,
I shall spend eternity,
Over there, over there.

Many loved ones for me wait,
Just beyond the pearly gate,
Over there, over there;
And they with the angels sing,
Praises to the Savior, King,
Over there, over there.

Refrain

O no sorrow, death and night,
Can that golden city blight,
Over there, over there;
And for aye I shall abide,
Safe with all the glorified,
Over there, over there.

Refrain
