Representative Text

1 I am on my journey home,
Where my Savior beckons, Come,
And the saints no more shall roam,
Meet me there;
Where the many mansions are,
And no sickness enters there,
Where the skies are always fair,
Meet me there.

Refrain:
Meet me there, meet me there,
Over in the land of promise,
Meet me there;
On the bright and sunny shore,
With our loved ones gone before,
And with those now crossing o’er,
Meet me there.

2 In that land beyond the sky,
There will be no pain or sigh,
Tears shall never dim the eye,
Meet me there;
Oh, the joy of meeting there,
Where no heart is bowed with care,
And each mind is freed from fear,
Meet me there. [Refrain]

3 Soon our trials will be o’er,
And we’ll stand on Canaan’s shore,
Safe with those who’ve gone before;
Meet me there;
There the saints shall never part,
Sorrow ne’er shall rend the heart;
Will you now to glory start?
Meet me there. [Refrain]

4 What a meeting there will be,
When our Savior’s face we’ll see,
And with loved ones ever be;
Meet me there.
To that land let’s travel on,
Till we stand before the throne,
And receive a shining crown;
Meet me there. [Refrain]
