8664. What A Greeting

1 On the great eternal morning,
When we’ll hear the trumpet blast,
When eternal day is dawning
And the night of sin is past;
When we see the Savior coming
In His glorious array,
Hallelujah! what a greeting
There will be that day!

What a greeting, what a meeting,
When our Savior we shall see by and by!
What a greeting, what a meeting,
When the blessèd Savior comes in the sky!

2 When the sun of righteousness shall
Rise above the eastern hills,
When its golden rays in splendor
Glitter o’er the rocks and rills,
On that resurrection morning
Wen the dead in Christ shall rise,
We will shout to meet each other
Yonder in the skies. [Refrain]

3 There will be no sin or evil,
And the tempter will be bound;
In the place of grief and sorrow
Shouts of glory will resound;
We shall reign with Christ a thousand years,
His face we then shall see;
Hallelujah! what a time of glory that will be! [Refrain]
