Lyrics

There is a beautiful world,
Where saints and angels sing;
A world where peace and pleasure reigns,
And heav’nly praises ring.

Refrain

We’ll be there, we’ll be there;
Palms of victory,
Crowns of glory we shall wear
In that beautiful world on high.

There is a beautiful world,
Where sorrow never comes;
A world where tears shall never fall
In sighing for our home.

Refrain

There is a beautiful world,
Unseen to mortal sight,
And darkness never enters there;
That home is fair and bright.

Refrain

There is a beautiful world,
Of harmony and love;
O, may we safely enter there,
And dwell with God above.
