There’s love and peace and joy and rest,
Over on the golden shore;
The friends are there that we love best,
Over on the golden shore.

Refrain

Think of the meeting,
Over on the golden shore;
Picture the greeting,
Over on the golden shore.

Refrain

Our treasures and our hearts are there,
Over on the golden shore;
Where all is bright and skies are fair,
Over on the golden shore.

Refrain

Our dear ones wait, who passed from sight,
Over on the golden shore;
But there with them we shall unite,
Over on the golden shore.

Refrain

They’re safe beside the Father’s throne,
Over on the golden shore;
The Savior claimed them for His own,
Over on the golden shore.

Refrain

At home with Christ we soon shall be,
Over on the golden shore;
And there His beauty we shall see,
Over on the golden shore.

Refrain

Then loyal unto Him who reigns,
Over on the golden shore;
We’ll praise our king whose love sustains,
Over on the golden shore.
