1 There are loved ones over yonder
In the blessed land of light,
Who are happy now in glory,
And who walk in garments white.
They will never know a sorrow,
They will never suffer pain,
There they rest from earthly toiling,
And their heart’s desire obtain.

Will you meet them, will you meet them,
Will you meet the loved ones there?
By the river in God’s blest harbor,
Will you meet the loved ones there?

2 There are loved ones over yonder
Who have laid their burdens down,
Who on earth have borne their crosses,
And now weary a starry crown.
With their weariness forgotten,
They rejoice with joy untold,
In the Father’s promised mansions
Where the streets are all of gold.

Will you meet them, will you meet them,
Will you meet the loved ones there?
By the river in God’s blest harbor,
Will you meet the loved ones there?

3 There are loved ones over yonder
Who have learned a wondrous song,
‘Tis the “new song” none can render
But the Savior’s ransomed throng.
Will you sing that song in glory?
Spotless garments will you wear?
Many dear ones now are waiting,
Will you meet them over there?

Yes, I’ll meet them, Yes, I’ll meet them,
Yes, I’ll meet them over there?
By the river in God’s blest harbor,
Yes, I’ll meet them over there?
