Representative Text

1 We have gathered to hear of the Savior, Of infinite mercy and love; But this meeting will soon, soon be ended, Shall we meet that dear Savior above? Chorus. Parting to meet again at the Judgment! Parting to meet no more here below; Oh, how sad the tho't to thee, trav’ler to eternity, Parting to meet again at the judgment. 2 Oh, how swiftly the moments are flying, O, decide, turn to Jesus and live; If you go to the judgment a sinner, What excuse to your Lord can you give? [Chorus] 3 Pause a moment; consider, ere going; Look about on these faces tonight; You will meet them again at the judgment, Are you ready to meet judgment light? [Chorus] 4 Once again there’ll be meeting and parting, When we stand at the great judgment throne; Will you join in the greeting eternal? Or shall Jesus forever disown? [Chorus] 5 O ye saints of the Lord, shout for gladness! For your fears and your sorrows are o’er, You are ready to meet at the judgment, Or to meet here below nevermore. 2d Chorus. Ready to meet again at the judgment! Ready to meet no more here below; Oh, how glad the thought to thee, trav’ler to eternity; Ready to meet again at the judgment.
