There is a home that lies beyond
And past it’s golden door,
Awaits the one who’s now away,
Not lost-just gone before,
And in that home that lies beyond,
The Master will prepare
A place for you, and when He calls
You’ll meet your loved one there.
They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time or reason,
Will change the way we feel.
No one knows the heartache,
That lies beyond the smiles,
No one knows how many times,
We have broken down and cried.
We want to tell you something,
So there won’t be any doubt,
You’re so wonderful to think of,
And so hard to be without.
There is no night without a dawning,
No winter without a spring,
And beyond death’s dark horizon
Our hearts once more will sing.
For those who leave us for a while
have only gone away,
Out of a restless careworn world
into a “brighter day”.
