When The Heart Shall Cease To Beat


When the heart shall cease to beat,
And the eye, once bright, grows dim,
And the pallid cheek no more its lustre bear,
I shall clasp glad hands with those
Who were once so dear to me,
I shall meet them all again, just over there.

Refrain:
Just over there, in mansions bright and fair,
Just over there,
Just over there we soon shall meet to part no more,
Just over there,
Just over there.

I shall know as I am known,
When around the great white throne,
Far removed beyond the reach of earthly care,
I shall recognize the friends
Who were precious to me here,
I shall meet them all again, just over there. [Refrain]

I am drawing near the home
Where the weary are at rest,
And I now begin to long the crown to wear,
Soon the loved ones I shall see,
They shall gladly welcome me,
I shall meet them all again, just over there. [Refrain]
