Where We'll Never Grow Old Hymn Story and Lyrics

Never Grow Old Story

This song, Where We'll Never Grow Old is from the pen of James Cleveland Moore. He authored this song in 1914.

James Cleveland Moore was the son of Charles Robert and Mary Ellen Hesterley Moore. He was born in Draketown, Georgia on May 2, 1888.

The inspiration for this song is based on an experience James C Moore had heard his father's failing voice due to his advanced age. He knew that due to his father's age he knew that soon he would not be able to hear his father sing.

James C Moore was 26 when he experienced this and was a seminary student at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia.

When he returned to school, James C Moore immediately wrote this hymn as a dedication to his father and mother.

It is based on Revelation 21:4 "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

This song is also known as just, "Never Grow Old" has been sung by famous musicians such as Jim Reeves, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, etc.

Where We'll Never Grow Old Lyrics

I have heard of a land on the faraway strand,
’Tis a beautiful home of the soul;
Built by Jesus on high, where we never shall die,
’Tis a land where we never grow old.


Never grow old, never grow old,
In a land where we’ll never grow old;
Never grow old, never grow old,
In a land where we’ll never grow old.

In that beautiful home where we’ll never more roam,
We shall be in the sweet by and by;
Happy praise to the King through eternity sing,
’Tis a land where we never shall die.

When our work here is done and the life-crown is won,
And our troubles and trials are o’er;
All our sorrow will end, and our voices will blend,
With the loved ones who’ve gone on before.
