31. The New “Over There”

1 They have reach’d the sunny shore,
And will never hunger more,
All their grief and pains are o’er,
Over there;
And they need no lamp by night,
For their day is always bright,
And their Saviour is their light,
Over there.

Refrain:
Over there, over there,
They can never know a fear,
Over there;
All their streets are shining gold,
And their glory is untold,
‘Tis the Saviour’s blissful fold,
Over there.

2 Now they feel no chilling blast,
For their winter time is past,
And their summers always last,
Over there;
They can never know a fear,
For the Saviour’s always near,
And with them is endless cheer,
Over there. [Refrain]

3 They have fought the weary fight,
Jesus sav’d them by his might,
Now they dwell with him in light,
Over there;
Soon we’ll reach the shining strand,
But we’ll wait our Lord’s command,
‘Till we see his beck’ning hand,
Over there. [Refrain]
