1 Beyond life’s raging fever,
Beyond life’s troubled dream;
Beyond death’s surging river,
Beyond that sullen stream,

The saint shall dwell in glory,
In beauty fading not;
Oh! Pilgrim, are you praying,
That this may be your lot?

2 Beyond this land of sighing,
Where countless tears are shed,
Beyond the sick and dying,
Beyond the mouldering dead, [Refrain]

3 Beyond this scene of trial,
Where heart and flesh do fail;
Beyond the darkening shadows,
Beyond the gloomy vale, [Refrain]

4 Beyond the thought of grieving,
A kind and gracious God;
Beyond the fear of sinning,
Beyond the chastening rod, [Refrain]

5 Beyond Earth’s weary burden,
The cross, the scourge, the rod;
The saint shall dwell in glory,
The saint shall dwell with God. [Refrain]
