Shall I Meet You Up There?

Representative Text

1 There’s a beautiful home far up in the sky,
And mansions prepared by our Savior on high;
He wants me to live in that country so fair,
And when I’m in glory, shall I meet you up there?

Refrain:
Shall I meet you up there?
Shall I meet you up there?
Where loved ones are waiting,
Shall I meet you up there?
Shall I meet you up there?
Shall I meet you up there?
Where loved ones are waiting,
Shall I meet you up there?

2 In that beautiful land where no sorrow will come,
We shall sing hallelujah around the bright throne;
A beautiful robe and a crown we shall wear,
And live there with Jesus. Shall I meet you up there? [Refrain]

3 No night shall be there, it is one endless day,
No tears will be shed, God will wipe them away;
No sickness and dying, no pain we shall bear,
No parting with loved ones. Shall I meet you up there? [Refrain]

4 When my work here is done, then the angels will come
And take me away to my beautiful home;
Forever to dwell in my Father’s own care,
With angels and loved ones. Shall I meet you up there? [Refrain]
