Representative Text

1 There’ll be something in Heaven for children to do,
None are idle in that blessèd land.
There’ll be loves for the heart,
There’ll be thoughts for the mind,
And employment for each little hand.

There’ll be something to do;
There’ll be something to do;
There’ll be something for children to do;
On the bright shining shore,
Where there’s joy evermore,
There’ll be something for children to do.

2 There’ll be lessons to learn of the wisdom of God,
As they wander the green meadows o’er;
And they’ll have for their teachers in that blest abode,
All the good that have gone there before. [Refrain]

3 There’ll be errands of love from the meadows above,
To the dear ones that linger below;
And it may be our Father the children will send
To be angels of mercy in woe. [Refrain]
