Representative Text

1 Oh, the meetings! Oh, the greetings!
Over in the summer land
Where our dearest, who were nearest,
Never give the parting hand.

Chorus:
All thro’ Jesus, all thro’ Jesus,
We shall meet our own again.
Al thro’ Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Glory, glory to His name!

2 They are waiting, watching, waiting,
Over on the golden shore;
We shall meet them, we shall greet them
When the storms of life are o’er. [Chorus]

3 Home supernal, joys eternal,
Just beyond the rolling tide;
No more sighing, no more dying,
Where the ransom’d ones abide. [Chorus]
