Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Shall We Meet?

Shall we meet beyond the river In the clime where angels dwell?

Author: Frank M. Davis
Tune: [Shall we meet beyond the river]
Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Shall we meet beyond the river,
In the clime where angels dwell?
Shall we meet where friendship never
Saddest tales of sorrow tell?

Refrain 1-3:
Shall we meet, shall we meet,
Shall we meet on the evergreen plain?
Shall we meet to know each other ever,
Shall we never part again?

2 Shall we meet where flow’rs are blooming
Ever fadeless, ever fair,
Where the light of day illumines
Lives of those who enter there? [Refrain]

3 Shall we meet our loved companions,
On that brighter, fairer shore,
When this life’s great work is ended,
Shall we meet to part no more? [Refrain]

4 Yes, we’ll meet beyond the river,
Where our joys shall never die,
We shall meet our loved and saved ones,
In that happy by and by.

Refrain 4:
We shall meet, we shall meet,
We shall meet on the evergreen plain;
We shall meet to know each other ever,
We shall never part again.
