1 1 I am thinking of the rapture in our blessed home on high.
When the redeemed are gathering in;
How we’ll raise the heav’nly anthem in that city in the sky,
When the redeemed are gathering in.

Refrain:
When the redeemed are gathering in,
Washed like snow, and free from all sin;
How we will shout, and how we will sing,
When the redeemed are gathering in.

2 There will be a great procession over on the streets of gold,
When the redeemed are gathering in;
O what music, O what singing, o’er the city will be rolled,
When the redeemed are gathering in. [Refrain]

3 Saints will sing redemption’s story with their voices clear and strong,
When the redeemed are gathering in;
Then the angels all will listen, for they cannot join that song,
When the redeemed are gathering in. [Refrain]

4 Then the Savior will give orders to prepare the banquet board,
When the redeemed are gathering in;
And we’ll hear His invitation, “Come, ye blessed of the Lord,”
When the redeemed are gathering in. [Refrain]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
