Aging is an inescapable part of life that everyone must endure. The passage of time marks our bodies and minds with undeniable signs, from gray hairs to the commemoration of birthdays. However, Savannah and Sarah Church, two musically blessed sisters, bring a message of hope in their rendition of “Where We’ll Never Grow Old,” shared in a video on YouTube. The hymn reveals the comforting truth that there exists a place untouched by the ravages of time.
The hymn sings of a heavenly land, a soul’s beautiful home built by Jesus, where death and aging are foreign concepts. The lyrics, inspired by the Bible, are a comforting reminder of the promises made by Jesus in John 14:2, “In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?” This verse reinforces the belief that in the heavenly realms, the faithful will find eternal rest and youth.
“I have heard of a land on the far away 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”
As the sisters melodiously express their longing for this eternal home, they evoke feelings of hope and anticipation in the hearts of their listeners. Their stunning vocal performance, reminiscent of bluegrass and country music, not only paints a vivid picture of this ageless realm but also declares their eagerness to praise the King throughout eternity.
The audience, visibly moved by the performance, responds with a roaring applause, a testament to the sisters’ musical talent and the hymn’s powerful message. A man in the video even asserts that he had never encountered a more exquisite arrangement of the song.
Although the video documents a performance from 2015, it is clear that “Where We’ll Never Grow Old” holds a special place in the hearts of Savannah and Sarah, as they have been singing it since childhood in their church.
The hymn “Where We’ll Never Grow Old” is a poignant reminder of the Christian hope for eternal life, free from the burdens of aging and death. It encourages believers to look forward to the day when they will be reunited with their loved ones in a place where youth is everlasting. Please take a moment to watch the video below.
