We Shall Sing A Sweet New Song


We shall sing a sweet, new song,
When we join the ransom’d throng,
Just beyond the pearly gates;
We shall sigh or grieve no more
All our hardships will be o’er,
Just beyond the pearly gates.

Refrain:
Just beyond the pearly gates,
Rapture for the faithful waits,
Glad hosannas we shall raise in increasing strains of praise,
Just beyond the pearly gates.

Nevermore our souls will roam,
When we reach that happy home,
Just beyond the pearly gates;
Faces, hidden now, will smile
Tender welcome, after while,
Just beyond the pearly gates. [Refrain]

Christ our King we shall behold,
When the tale of life is told,
Just beyond the pearly gates;
Brighter than the noontide sun
He will smile, and say “well done,”
Just beyond the pearly gates [Refrain]
