1 Beyond life's raging fever,
Beyond life's troubled dream,
Beyond death's surging river,
Beyond that sullen stream,
The saints 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
Beyond this scene of trial,
Where heart and flesh do fail;
Beyond the dark'ning shadows,
Beyond the gloomy vale,

3 Beyond the tho't of grieving,
A kind and gracious God,
Beyond the fear of sinning,
Beyond the chast'ning rod,
Beyond earth's weary burden,
The cross, the scourge, the rod;
The saints shall dwell in glory,
The saints shall dwell with God.
