‘Far and Away We’ll Soar’ words and music
by Lois Mountz
Far and Away We’ll Soar
Someday believers will rise and soar like eagles
If we believe, we’ll soar far and away;
On eagle wings we will leave this world behind,
If we trust our blessed Lord.
Far and away we’ll soar and join our loved ones;
When we are guided to His holy place;
A place where only peace and love abide;
A place where happiness is found.
Far and away we’ll soar to heaven’s shore;
Far and away on eagle’s wings we’ll soar;
We’ll soar high o’er the clouds to our heavenly home,
And by his throne we’ll then abide.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.
24 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.
