Representative Text

1 There will be a wondrous meeting
When we are there,
There will be a glorious greeting
When we are there.

Refrain:
In the shining mansions fair,
That He promised to prepare,
We shall safely dwell forever,
When we are there.

2 There will be no earthly losses
When we are there,
There will be no heavy crosses
When we are there. [Refrain]

3 There will be no tears or crying
When we are there,
There will be no pains or dying
When we are there. [Refrain]

4 There will be no more unkindness,
When we are there;
There will be no halt or blindness
When we are there. [Refrain]

There will be no evil near us,
When we are there;
But the Lord will keep and cheer us,
When we are there. [Refrain]
