Representative Text

1 O think of the home over there,
By the side of the river of light,
Where the saints all immortal and fair
Are robed in their garments of white.

Refrain:
Over there, over there, O think of the home over there.
Over there, over there, O think of the home over there.

2 O think of the friends over there,
Who before us the journey have trod;
Of the song that they breathe on the air
In their home in the palace of God.

3 My Saviour is now over there,
Where my kindred and friends are at rest;
Then away from my sorrow and care
Let me fly to the land of the blest.

4 I’ll soon be at home over there,
For the end of my journey I see;
Many dear to my heart over there
Are waiting and watching for me.
