Hymn/Song Information

Over the river faces I see Fair as the




Over the river,
faces I see,
Fair as the morning,
looking for me;
Free from their sorrow,
grief and despair,
Waiting and watching
patiently there.

Looking this way, yes,
looking this way,
Loved ones are waiting,
looking this way;
Fair as the morning,
bright as the day,
Dear ones in glory,
looking this way.



Father and mother,
safe in that vale,
Watch for the boatman,
wait for the sail,
Bearing their loved ones
over the tide,
Into the harbor,
near to their side.

Looking this way, yes,
looking this way,
Loved ones are waiting,
looking this way;
Fair as the morning,
bright as the day,
Dear ones in glory,
looking this way.



Brother and sister,
gone to that clime,
Wait for the others,
coming sometime,
Safe with the angels,
whiter than snow,
Watching for dear ones,
waiting below.

Looking this way, yes,
looking this way,
Loved ones are waiting,
looking this way;
Fair as the morning,
bright as the day,
Dear ones in glory,
looking this way.



Sweet little darling,
light of the home,
Looking for someone,
beckoning, “Come”;
Bright as a sunbeam,
pure as the dew,
Anxiously looking,
mother, for you.

Looking this way, yes,
looking this way,
Loved ones are waiting,
looking this way;
Fair as the morning,
bright as the day,
Dear ones in glory,
looking this way.
