1 Oh, joyous is the meeting
Of Christians here on earth,
And tender is the greeting
Of those of heav’nly birth;
But oh, the sweet communion,
Beyond the starlit sky,
And oh, the glad reunion,
No more to say Goodbye.

No more to say Goodbye,
No more to say Goodbye;
We soon shall meet at Jesus’ feet,
No more to say Goodbye.

2 With joy we tell the story,
What grace for us has done,
And give the praise and glory,
To God’s beloved Son;
And then we tell each other
Of brighter joys on high,
When we shall meet together,
No more to say Goodbye. [Refrain]

3 We seek the Savior’s blessing,
We feel His quick’ning pow’r,
While near the cross we’re pressing,
We live one blessed hour;
Tho’ gladly we would linger,
The moments swiftly fly,
But soon we’ll meet together,
No more to say Goodbye. [Refrain]
