1 Jesus, may all our family band,
When life's turmoils are o'er;
Together meet at thy right hand,
Where partings are no more.

Chorus:
Let me strive to go there,
That its joy we may share,
When we have finished our mission below.

2 There to behold our gracious God,
And endless bliss enjoy;
Where sin and sorrow ne'er intrude
Our pleasures to alloy. [Chorus]

3 May we pass through those gates of pearl,
And walk the streets of gold;
Where God his glory shall unfurl,
Rejoicing we'll behold. [Chorus]

4 Our ransomed powers shall there unite
In songs of praise to thee;
With all the saints and angels bright,
Through vast eternity. [Chorus]
