1 I have loved ones who’ve gone to
That beautiful home—
And I’m longing their faces to see;
O to sing the sweet story,
They are beckoning, Come!
They are waiting and watching for me.

Refrain:
They are waiting for me,
They are waiting for me;
They are calling me yonder
To that beautiful shore,
They are waiting and watching for me.

2 They are shouting and singing
In those mansions above;
O so happy to meet them I’ll be;
There sweet music is ringing—
All is gladness and love,
They are waiting and watching for me. [Refrain]

3 O I long for that meeting,
On that glittering strand;
Far across the dark billowy sea;
For that glorious greeting
In that beautiful land,
They are waiting and watching for me. [Refrain]

4 They are calling me yonder,
To that beautiful shore;
There’s a home that is waiting for me;
There I know from my loved ones,
I will part nevermore,
They are waiting and watching for me. [Refrain]
