Representative Text

1 Soon our journey will be ended,
Soon our trials will be o’er;
We shall dwell with Christ, our Savior,
On the bright eternal shore.

Refrain:
We shall meet our great Redeemer,
Songs of praises we shall sing,
Every soul with gladness thrilling,
In the presence of our king.

2 We shall meet our friends and loved ones
Who are waiting at the door;
There’ll be many a happy meeting,
On the bright celestial shore. [Refrain]

3 There the wicked cease from troubling,
There the weary are at rest;
Free from pain and woe and sorrow,
We shall be forever blest. [Refrain]
