I’m gonna lay down all of this life’s burdens
And I’m gonna lay down all of this life’s cares,
Yes I’m gonna leave them all far behind me
When I reach that Lovely Country over There!

I’m gonna leave all my frowns behind me
And I’m gonna have a heart that never breaks;
The Lord’s gonna wipe all the tears from my eyes
Up There in that Lovely Land of no mistakes!

The Lord will give me all I ever need
There! Yes, the Lord will call my name and say,
Well done! I will never want up There for anything!
When, at long last, my Savior welcomes me Home!
