Full Text

1 We have gathered to hear of the Savior,
Of His infinite mercy and love;
But this meeting will soon, soon be ended,
Shall we meet that dear Savior above?

Refrain:
Parting to meet again at the Judgment,
Parting to meet no more here below,
Oh, how sad the thought to thee, trav’ler to eternity;
Parting to meet again at the Judgment.

2 Oh, how swiftly the moments are passing,
Oh, decide, now for Jesus to live;
If you go to the Judgment a sinner,
What excuse to the Lord can you give? [Refrain]

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 face Judgment light? [Refrain]

4 Once again there’ll be meeting and parting,
When we meet at the great Judgment throne;
Will you join in the greetings eternal,
Or shall Jesus forever disown? [Refrain]

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 never more.

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.
