When Our Feet Have Reached The Summit


When our feet have reached the summit of the weary hills of earth,
And the morning light is breaking o’er the sea;
Then our hearts shall know no sadness when the mists shall clear away,
And the pearly gates unfold for you and me.

Refrain:
There are hearts shall know no sadness, by and by,
But love, joy and gladness, there on high;
We shall know no care nor sorrow,
On that resurrection day,
When the pearly gates unfold for you and me.

Just beyond the river Jordan are sweet fields of living green,
And the fair, immortal flowers we shall see;
While life’s river floweth ever by the great, white throne of God,
When the pearly gates unfold for you and me. [Refrain]

Thro’ the valley of the shadow we may journey undismayed,
If we trust His “Fear not, I will be with thee;”
Tho’ we pass amid the waters we shall by His strength be stayed,
‘Till the pearly gates unfold for you and me. [Refrain]
