13995. Over There

1 I have heard of a place over there,
Where Jesus my Savior doth reign;
There will be no more death over there,
Neither sighing, nor sorrow, nor pain.

O I have a home over there (over there),
Where Jesus my Savior doth reign;
’Tis a beautiful place over there,
Over there, over there.

2 I have friends that have gone over there,
And I hope to rejoin them again;
How delightful to meet over there,
And with loved ones forever remain. [Refrain]

3 There are angels that sing over there—
How pleasant their singing must be;
There are crowns for the faithful to wear,
And I trust there’s a bright one for me. [Refrain]

4 There are mansions for all over there,
For the poor and the homeless below;
There is room for the world over there,
And my Savior invites all to go. [Refrain]
