Over the tide of life’s wonderful sea,
Is a bright mansion that’s waiting for me;
And of its glories, I soon shall behold,
Treasures more precious than gold.


Soon I shall anchor on Hea­ven’s bright shore,
And from all sorrows be free;
There shall no trouble or death ever come,
And with my Sav­ior I’ll be.

Soon in that beau­ti­ful clime I shall dwell,
And of its wonders for­ev­er will tell;
There’ll be no doubtings or fearings for me,
Over life’s wonderful sea.


Tho’ for a while on this earth I may be,
Tossed like a ship by a storm on the sea;
Trusting my Sav­ior as pilot and guide,
Over this troublesome sea.
