Full Text

1 My Saviour has a home prepared beyond the skies,
Where ransomed ones my coming await;
And when my Lord shall bid me enter Paradise,
I want to meet my Saviour at the gate.

Refrain:
I know he will meet me at the gate,
I know he will meet me at the gate;
When before the jasper wall, on my Saviour’s name I call,
Then I know he will meet me at the gate.

2 I long to see his face, my Prophet, Priest and King;
I long to meet those loved ones who wait
Within the Jasper walls, where harps of angels ring;
I long to meet my Saviour at the gate. [Refrain]

3 Within the city fair the streets are paved with gold,
There loved ones never more separate;
But sweeter still the thought that Jesus I’ll behold,
For surely he will meet me at the gate. [Refrain]

4 So all the way along by faith I’ll hold his hand,
My life and all to him consecrate,
And know that, when at last I reach the promised land,
My Saviour will be waiting at the gate. [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 >
