1 Shall we meet again, dear mother,
On that bright, eternal shore,
Where we’ll part again, no never,
But be safe for evermore?

Yes, I’ll meet you there, dear mother,
On that happy, golden shore;
O the joy of that glad meeting,
Where sad partings come no more.

2 Shall we meet again, dear mother,
Free from sorrow, free from care;
There to sing glad songs forever,
In those mansions bright and fair? [Refrain]

3 Yes, we’ll meet again, dear mother,
When earth’s trials all are past;
When my barque shall reach the haven,
And is anchored safe at last. [Refrain]

4 O the joy of that glad meeting,
Reunited in that home;
On the resurrection morning,
Whence our Lord for us shall come. [Refrain]
