Representative Text

1 We shall meet beyond the river,
In that glorious land of bliss,
Where the Son shall reign forever,
As the King of Righteousness;
We shall meet in yonder city,
With its walls of jasper, bright,
We shall shout our songs of triumph,
No more sorrow, pain nor night.

Refrain:
We shall meet in yonder city
By and by and by and by;
We shall sing our songs forever
Round our Savior’s throne on high.

2 We shall meet with those departed,
From this world of sin and strife,
Meet no longer broken hearted,
But with an eternal life.
We shall meet and share the glory
Of that countless, happy throng,
We shall tell redemption’s story,
Sing His praises, loud and long. [Refrain]

3 We shall meet with Christ, our Savior,
Soon to come and take His own;
Then we’ll share His blessed favor,
And shall know as we are known.
Oh! the joy, the exultation
Of the saints then truly His!
Oh! the glorious transformation,
When we see Him as He is. [Refrain]
