I can just see them
Walking on the shores of heaven
Praising the lord 
And watching the tide roll in
Friends that have gone on 
Oh,how I miss you so
And somehow I know if you could
That you'd let me know

That you're doing fine
And it doesn't hurt anymore
Things couldn't be better
That heaven is worth waiting for
That you miss me to and til then
You'll be praying for me
And I know if you could
Talk to me now
Than here's what you'd say to me

[Chorus:]
Wish you were here
It's such a beautiful place
Wish you were here
Nothing but clear sunny days
Well it never rains
And no one complains
And we haven't seen a tear
We're having a great time
Wish you were here...

I can just see them 
Walking on the shores together
Their talking with Jesus
Safe and secure in his love
Friends and loved ones 
Walking in heavenly peace
And I know if they could 
Talk to me now
Then here's what they'd say to me

[Chorus:]
Wish you were here
It's such a beautiful place
Wish you were here
Nothing but clear sunny days
Well it never rains 
And no one complains 
And we haven't seen a tear
We're having a great time 
Wish you were here...

Well it never rains 
And no one complains
And we haven't seen a tear
Oh, we're having a great time 
And we wish you were here
