Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Skola vi väl alla mötas?

Representative Text

1 Skola vi väl alla mötas,
Bortom Jordanflodens brus
Och med alla frälstas skara
Evigt bo i fridens hus?

Kör:
Mötas då, mötas då
På den andra sidan floden,
Få vi mötas bortom floden,
Dit ej några stormar nå?

2 Få vi mötas i den hamnen
Efter stormar, sorg och pust?
Få vi mötas, kata ankar
Vid den sköna himlens kust? [Kör]

3 Mötas vi uti den staden,
Som vid lifvets klara älf
Är med jaspis, guld och p¨rlor
Byggd utaf vår fader själf? [Kör]

4 Där de återlöstas lofsång
Höjs i ljuflig harmoni,
Och allt skapadt inför tronen
Stämmer upp sin melodi. [Kör]

5 Få vi möta våra kära,
Som här rycktes ur vår famn,
Se dem där uti förklaring
Höra utaf dem vårt namn? [Kör]

6 Få vi möta Herren Kristus,
När han hämtar hem sin brud?
Få vi slutas i hans armar
Och för evigt lofva Gud? [Kör]
