I've always heard there is a land
Beyond the mortal dreams of man
Where every tear will be left behind
But it must be in another time, oh

There'll be an everlasting light
Shining a purest holy white
And every fear will be erased
But it must be in another place, oh

So I'm waiting for another time and another place
Where all my hopes and dreams
Will be captured with one look at Jesus face
Oh, my heart's been burning, my soul keeps yearning
Sometimes I can hardly wait for that sweet, sweet someday
When I'll be swept away to another time and another place

I've grown tired of earthly things
They promise peace but furnish pain
All of life's sweetest joys combined
Could never match those in another time, oh

And though I put my trust in Christ
And felt His spirit move in my life
I know it's truly just a taste
Of His glory in another place, oh

So I'm waiting for another time and another place
Where all my hopes and dreams
Will be captured with one look at Jesus' face
Oh, my heart's been burning, my soul keeps yearning
Sometimes I can hardly wait for that sweet, sweet someday
When I'll be swept away to another time and another place

So I'm waiting for another time and another place
Where all my hopes and dreams
Will be captured with one look at Jesus face
Oh, my heart's been burning, my soul keeps yearning
Sometimes I can hardly wait for that sweet, sweet someday
When I'll be swept away to another time and another place

Another time, another place
Another time, another place

    It means that we should look forward to going to christ's second coming where all our hopes and dreams will come to life when we see jesus, and life will be better than we ever imagined.
