1 We shall greet them at home, we shall greet them,
When the sorrows of life shall be o'er,
Our loved ones, we hope soon to meet them
On Eden's fair, beautiful shore.
The glorious tho't, how consoling,
To know that the time is so nigh,
When Jesus the world shall controling,
Permit us to meet by and by.
2 We shall greet them at home, we shall greet them,
Tho' now they are hid from our sight,
We think of the time we shall meet them,
And it oft fills our hearts with delight.
We have laid them away in deep sadness,
Yet not without hope in our breast,
For again they will join us, in gladness,
And enter the heavenly rest.
3 We shall greet them at home, we shall greet them,
Where nothing can over divide;
Where sickness, or death cannot harm them,
Or tear them again from our side;
There we'll range beside life's cooling river,
'Neath the tree of life's shade we shall roam,
With the glory of God shining over,
We'll greet them, we'll greet them at home.
