"There's a land where the birds are ever singing,
Where the flowers in beauty never fade;
Where the joybells of love ever ringing,
And no evil shall ever dare invade
We can tell of the way she has traveled,
When at last she shall enter heaven's door;
And the problems of life will be unraveled,
When we meet her on that eternal shore. .
She shall gaze on his face in adoration,
Joy resplendent shall thrill our souls anew,
As she joins the King of salvation
And eternity's glories come to view.
