Lyrics
There's a place I know for certain
I will someday see
When I lay down my burden
And look on Galilee
Way beyond the surly bonds of earth and hate and war
On a far celestial shore

There’s a valley of crystal waters
Vines adorn the hill
Every bough is heavy with fruit
You can pick your fill
There’s a land of plenty where no child shall want for more
On a far celestial shore

And I'll know such jubilation
Joy and exaltation when I see my lord

There’s a choir and congregation
Oooh how sweet the sound
But laughter too is everywhere
Grey faces are not found
Hallelujah’s rise up from a whisper to a roar
On a far celestial shore

Solo verse

Way beyond the surly bonds of earth and hate and war
On a far celestial shore
There’s a land of plenty where no child shall want for more
On a far celestial shore
Hallelujah’s rise up from a whisper to a roar
On a far celestial shore

On a far far celestial shore

On a far celestial shore
