Additional verses:
A love-light beams across the foam
Where the soul of man never dies
Where the soul........never dies
It shines to light the fires of home
Where the soul of man never dies
Where the soul........never dies.
My life will end in deathless sleep
Where the soul of man never dies
Where the soul........never dies
And everlasting joys I'll reap
Where the soul of man never dies
Where the soul........never dies.
I'm on my way to that fair land
Where the soul of man never dies
Where the soul........never dies
Where there will be no parting hand
Where the soul of man never dies
Where the soul........never dies.
