Representative Text

1 Through days of toil and sorrow,
Thro’ days of joy and pain,
God surely has been with us,
And now we meet again.

O what love! Wondrous love,
That He should let us meet again,
O what love! Wondrous love,
That He should let us meet again.

2 So safely has He guided
Thro’ ev’ry trying hour,
Our hearts have felt the rapture
Of all His keeping pow’r. [Refrain]

3 He might have called us yonder,
We might have gone astray;
But by His love and mercy
We meet another day. [Refrain]

4 When in the heav’nly mansions
We meet those gone before,
We’ll sing in glad reunion
Upon the shining shore. [Refrain]
