Meet Me

Just beyond these earthly scenes, Past the vail that intervenes

Representative Text

1 Just beyond these earthly scenes,
Past the vail that intervenes,
and the glory form us screens,
Meet met there;
Where by faith my soul doth wing,
Upward like a heav'n-bound thing,
To the palace of the King. Meet me there.

Meet me there, meet me there,
In that blessed home of promise,
Meet me there, meet me there,
Where angelic harps shall ring,
And the saints immortal sing,
In the palace of the King,
Meet me there.

2 When shall pass this dreary night,
And shall dawn athat morning bright,
And our faith shall end in sight,
Meet me there;
When the mists shall cear away,
And reveal that "perfect day,"
Brother, sister, then, I pray,
Meet me there. [Chorus]

3 Where He'll bid them welcome all,
Rich and poor, and great and small,
When the Lord His own shall call,
Meet me there;
In that home of beauty rare,
Which He left us to prepare,
Where are many mansions fair,
Meet me there. [Chorus]

4 When those beauties shall unfold,
Gates of pearl and street of gold,
Things to mortal ears untold,
Meet me there;
Where Life's River sparkles clear,
And the Tree of Life so near,
Yields its fruitage all the eyar,
Meet me there. [Chorus]

5 When the hosts redeemed return,
And of Jesus' triumphs learn,
And their hearts with rapture burn,
Meet me there;
Where each op'ning joy shall bring
Cause for ransomed one to sing
Praises new unto their King,
Meet me there. [Chorus]
