Representative Text

1 Dearest friendships here are broken,
But there is a city fair
Where no parting word is spoken;
Some glad morning, meet me there.

Refrain:
Meet me there, O meet me there,
Heaven’s untold bliss to share;
In the home on high there’s no sad goodbye,
Some glad morning, meet me there.

2 Where the stream of life is flowing
May we wander free and blest;
Where the healing trees are growing,
After toiling may we rest. [Refrain]

3 Where no storm clouds throw their shadows
On the glorious summer hours,
Straying thro’ celestial meadows,
May we gather deathless flowers. [Refrain]

4 Where redemption’s song is pealing
Forth in grandeur let us meet,
And in grateful worship kneeling,
Cast our crowns at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]
