|Text:||We Shall Know Each Other There|
|Tune:||[Know each other, blessed comfort]|
|Composer:||W. H. Doane|
1 Know each other, blessed comfort!
When this mortal life is o'er,
We shall know our friends departed,
Kindred spirits gone before.
In our holy thrill of transport
They will be the first to share;
First to bid us kindly welcome;
We shall know, yes, know each other there,
We shall know, yes, know each other there;
We shall meet beside the crystal river,
We shall know each other there.
2 Know each other? who will question
Truth so grateful to the heart,
When its chords are torn and bleeding,
When its earthly hopes depart?
Christian love, how pure and sacred!
Who, the parting scene could bear,
Did not mercy whisper gently,
We shall know each other there? [Refrain]
3 Sweet the moments when we gather
In the house of God to pray;
Precious tears are those we mingle;
How they cheer us on our way!
Thro’ the glass of faith directed
To our Father’s mansion fair,
Comes the golden light of promise,
We shall know each other there! [Refrain]
