12320. The World Of Light

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

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

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

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

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