1 There is soon to be a meeting
With our Savior in the air,
For He’s gone to realms of glory,
There our mansions to prepare;
He is coming back to meet us,
With a host of angels fair,
And there’s sure to be some shouting
When we all meet there.

Refrain:
When we all meet there,
At the meeting in the air,
There is sure to be some shouting
When we all meet there;
When we all meet there,
At the meeting in the air,
There is sure to be some shouting
When we all meet there.

2 See the patriarchs and prophets
Coming forth from bursting tombs,
They are coming to this meeting,
And they’re coming very soon;
There comes Abraham and Isaac,
With their kindred everywhere,
There is sure to be some shouting
When we all get there. [Refrain]

3 There is Moses from Mount Nebo,
There is Daniel from the Cave,
They are marching in the forefront,
While the hosts their banners wave;
O what joy to see them coming,
To the meeting in the air!
There is sure to be some shouting
When they all get there. [Refrain]

4 Still they gather, see them coming,
From the mission fields afar,
With the pilgrims from all nations,
And the martyrs in the war;
See St. Paul, the great apostle,
In his robes made white and fair,
I am sure there’ll be some shouting
When they all get there. [Refrain]

5 Are you ready for the meeting
With our Savior in the air?
If your heart is pure and holy,
You will be no stranger there;
He is coming soon, my brother,
With a host of angels fair,
And I’m sure there’ll be some shouting
When we all meet there. [Refrain]
