No Sorrow There

F.J. Crosby         George C. Stebbins

No sorrow there in yonder clime,
Beyond the troubled waves of time;
No dreary nights nor weeping eyes,
No aching hearts, nor broken ties.

Ah, who would dwell forever here,
Away from those we hold so dear -
Away from Him whose wondrous love
Prepares for us a home above?

A little while our watch to keep,
A little while to wake and sleep,
To bear the cross, endure the pain -
And then with Christ forever reign.


O perfect rest, O calm repose,
Where life's clear stream in beauty flows!
And we can sing, without a care,
No sorrow there, no sorrow there.
