OVER THERE

Post by terryo » Sat Mar 21, 2009 2:37 am

A dear lady from my home church used to sing this song. For years she sang this song at our state-wide campmeeting and I don't think anyone ever really heard her get all the way through the song for all the shouting and worshipping that ensued. We still love this song today!

Over There
(I)
There's a land of pure delight, over there
Where our faith is lost in sight, over there
There no sorrow enters in, no temptation and no sin
There's a robe and crown to win, over there
There'll be saints arrayed in white
There'll be angels shining bright
There'll be days without a night, over there
There'll be harpers playing grand, in the full salvation band
In the midst the Lamb shall stand, over there

(II)
There'll be fruits of living trees, over there
There'll be land free from disease, over there
There'll be saints and martyrs bold
Who have suffered pain untold
Now they walk the streets of gold, over there
There'll be Jacob who prevailed, Job who by his foes assailed
John Bunyan won't be failed over there
There'll be Jonah saved from whales
There'll be neither storms nor gales
And it neither rains now hails, over there

(III)
There'll be Naomi and Ruth, over there
And they'll have eternal youth, over there
There'll be Moses to be seen, viewing fields of living green
Miriam plays her tambourine, over there
Bartimaeus we all shall see, and the Hebrew children three
Praising God they all shall be, over there
There'll be Noah saved from flood
There'll be Joseph great and good
Round the throne they all have stood, over there

(IV)
John and James, the sons of thunder, will be there
And we'll all be filled with wonder, over there
There the widow's son of Nain, will be raised to life again
Doubting Thomas won't complain, over there
There'll be David, friend of Saul
Stephen hand in hand with Paul
Little Zachaeus won't be small, over there
Every race and every tribe, will be there as John described
Standing by the Savior's side, over there

(V)
There'll be Daniel from the den, over there
And Darius won't rule him then, over there
Then will Enoch testify, how God took him to the sky
Proving all don't have to die, to get there
There'll be Elijah singing there, of his trip up in the air
And the whirl-wind and the fire, over there
There will be no one to pout, when we all begin to shout
And no one can put us out, over there!

(CHORUS)
I'll be there, I'll be there
And the glory of His kingdom I shall share
When the golden harps are played
And the saints rewards are paid
In a spotless robe arrayed, I'll be there!

We were just listening to a recording of Thelma Massengill Neal sing this at the Mississippi camp meeting and were trying to figure out a few words - thank you for posting the lyrics!

My mother, Rilla Maye Ricks, used to sing this song in the early to mid 1950s at 16th Street Church of God, Anniston, Alabama.
