(1832–1893)

Over the river, the river of time,
Lies the bright land of a verdure sublime;
Valleys of beauty in splendor do shine,
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful home.

Refrain

Over the river, the beautiful river,
Over the river, the fields are all green;
Over the river, the beautiful river,
Over the river, the fields are all green.

Over the river, the pilgrims retreat,
Gorgeous in splendor, in beauty complete;
Angels are singing in harmony sweet,
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful home.

Refrain

Over the river, our sorrows will cease,
Hushed by the songs of heavenly peace;
When we get there what a happy release,
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful home.

Refrain

Over the river, the mansions are there;
Oh how inviting! our loved ones are there;
Soon in those mansions their story we’ll share,
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful home.

Refrain
