Lyrics

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.
