Lyrics:
Verse 1:
I’ve a home prepared where the saints abide
Over in the glory land
I long to be by my Saviors side
Over in the glory land

Chorus:
Just over in the glory land
I’ll join (yes join) the happy angels band
Over in the glory land
Just over in the glory land
There with (yes with) the mighty host I’ll stand
Over in the glory land

Verse 2:
I’m on my way to those mansions fair
Over in the glory land
There to sing Gods praise and his glory share
Over in the glory land

Verse 3:
What a joyful thought that my Lord Ill see
Over in the glory land
And the kindred say there forever I’ll be
Over in the glory land

Verse 4:
With the blood-washed throng, I will shout and sing,
Just over in the Gloryland!
Glad hosannas to Christ, the Lord and King,
Just over in the Gloryland!
