Representative Text

1 There will be a glad reunion by and by,
Severed hearts will be united soon on high;
Friend with friend again shall meet,
Joy and gladness be replete
In that land where sorrow never dims the eye.

Refrain:
O the glad reunion by and by,
O the glad reunion by and by,
God shall wipe away all tears from ev’ry eye,
At the glad reunion by and by.

2 Brightly gleams this Star of hope when suns go down,
Ev’ry child of God shall wear a starry crown;
Here we labor and we pray,
Here our treasures fade away,
But up yonder waiteth honor and renown. [Refrain]

3 We can almost see that bright and shining land,
Where the children of the King in glory stand;
Where with raptured hearts they sing
Of their Savior, Lord and King,
Who redeemed and led them onward by His hand. [Refrain]
