190. The Meeting at the Door

1 There’s a tho’t that ever cheers me
Tho’ dark clouds beset my way,
Tho’ the thorns upon my pathway vex me sore.
All the clouds will change to sunshine,
On that bright and glorious day,
When the loved ones come to meet me at the door.

Refrain:
What a meeting, what a greeting,
When we join the loved ones on the golden shore,
What a meeting, what a greeting,
When the loved ones come to meet us at the door.

2 They have left this vale of sorrow,
They have left this land of night,
They are with the blest of ages gone before,
They are basking in the sunshine,
In the summerland of light,
And I long to see their faces at the door. [Refrain]

3 They are waiting over Jordan,
By the great white throne of God,
Soon our feet will touch upon the other shore.
And the wintry storms of trouble,
And the stony paths we trod,
Will be lost in that sweet greeting at the door. [Refrain]
