Though Burdens Heavy We Here Must Bear


Tho’ burdens heavy we here must bear,
And the eyes are made dim with tears,
There’ll be naught of sorrow “over there”
In the “home of the endless years.”

Chorus:
In the better land,
In that sunny land,
In that Eden land, safe by and by;
In that better land,
In that sunny land,
In that Eden land, safe by and by.

With toilsome effort in faith we sow,
Tho’ no harvest our vision cheers;
We will not lose heart, ’twill all be plain,
In the “home of the endless years.” [Chorus]

We’ll labor on with a smile and song,
And we’ll give to the winds our fears,
For the day of trials can’t be long,
Soon the “home of the endless years.” [Chorus]
