Just Beyond The
Written by James "Jimmy" Ferguson upon
the death of his father, Edgar Ferguson.
- Just beyond the shining river
- Is a land so bright and fair
- All the redeemed throughout the ages
- Are anxiously awaiting for us there.
- In this land there is no sickness
- No trouble nor even night
- For Jesus Christ, "The Prince of Glory"
- He will be our eternal light.
- Face to face I can thank him
- For the debt he paid for me
- When he said to the Father, It is finished
- Wounded and broken on Calvary.
- My heart is exceedingly heavy
- As I think of the anguish he bore
- Took my sins upon himself
- And made me his for evermore.
