1 Say, dear brother, will you meet me in that land so bright and fair,
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there!
Where the saints of countless ages, and the white-robed angels are?
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there!

Refrain:
Will you meet me over there?
Will you meet me over there?
Will you meet me in that city bright and fair?
Yes, dear brother, we will meet and sing together there on high
And be happy and be happy over there!

2 We will meet our friends and loved ones, at our Father’s snow-white throne,
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there!
Where no sickness, pain or sorrow, and sad partings never come?
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there! [Refrain]

3 We will meet our blessed Saviour, in that land of endless light,
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there!
We will sing and shout forever, in those mansions fair and bright!
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there! [Refrain]
