1368. Shall we meet beyond the river

1 Shall we meet beyond the river,
Where the surges cease to roll?
Where, in all the bright forever,
Sorrow ne'er shall press the soul?

Refrain:
Shall we meet, shall we meet,
Shall we meet beyond the river?
Shall we meet beyond the river,
Where the surges cease to roll?

2 Shall we meet in that blest harbor,
When our stormy voyage is o'er?
Shall we meet and cast the anchor
By the fair, celestial shore? [Refrain]

3 Shall we meet in yonder city,
Where the tow'rs of crystal shine?
Where the walls are all of jasper,
Built by workmanship divine? [Refrain]

4 Shall we meet with Christ, our Saviour,
When he comes to claim his own?
Shall we know his blessed favor,
And sit down upon his throne? [Refrain]
