I have friends beyond the sky,
Dwelling in that peaceful land,
Some day we'll meet them by and by,
And join the heav'nly band,
Some day we'll join that happy angel band.
O blessed day when I shall be
With Him who died for me,
With Him who made me free,
We'll join the happy angel band,
And sing at God's right hand.
Will you come and go with me,
To the land beyond death's sea?
With friends and loved ones there to be,
Is a home for you and me,
We're going home to that sweet home some day.
R. P. Allen dated his song February 18, 1927.
