Just Beyond The Shining River

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.
