Blessed Forever 348b

Tune: Eld. John W. Parker, 1902; Arranged by Miss Leila Underwood, 1902
Lyrics: Eld. John W. Parker, 1902
Meter: Particular Meter: 10,8,11,9
I sometimes think itís too good to be true,
When they talk of life's fair river;
Of a land that's so bright, where there is no night
In that beautiful, that blest forever.

Chorus:

No matter what the world says,
No matter for its frowns,
No matter for its storms, no, never,
If to Jesus you are true
There's a glory waits for you
In that beautiful, that blest forever.

I sometimes wish, when I am weary and sad,
That the golden gates were nearer;
But I know that I can wait, for a joy that's so great,
For I know that the crown will be dearer.

(Chorus)
Eld. John W. Parker, of Ozark, Alabama, was "a Primitive Baptist minister of considerable influence and ability."
