Representative Text

1 Shall we meet beyond the river,
In the land where angels dwell,
There to reign with Christ forever,
And His love and mercy tell?

Chorus:
Shall we meet, shall we meet,
Meet our friends on the evergreen plain?
We shall meet, we shall meet,
Meet and never part again.

2 Shall we meet where flow’rs are blooming,
Ever fadeless, ever fair?
Where the light of heav’n illuming
Lives of those who enter there? [Chorus]

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