Over There
Revelation 21 & 22

On that bright and blessed morning
Over there I want to be
Walking in that fair City –
Crystal River flowing free.

There one day as a thousand years,
So Time I will not need,
To serve the risen Savior
And worship Him indeed.

Eating of the Tree of Life
So very good to me.
Each month a new fruit
A delicious delicacy.

Then I’ll meet my loved ones,
Forever time to talk
In sweet reunion
In that City we will walk.

He will wipe away all tears.
No more crying out in pain,
As death gives way to victory,
To live in Christ is gain.

On that bright and blessed morning
Over there I want to be
Walking in that fair City –
Crystal River flowing free.
