Representative Text

1 We shall meet on the other side,
When the journey is done at last;
When the life-voyage is o’er,
And we reach the blest shore,
We shall meet on the other side.

Refrain:
We shall meet on the other side,
We shall meet on the other side;
And it cannot be long,
Ere we sing the new song,
As we meet on the other side.

2 We shall meet on the other side,
Tho’ thro’ storms we must often pass;
With the harbor in sight,
We will steer for the light,
And will meet on the other side. [Refrain]

3 We shall meet on the other side,
There are many already there;
On the home-side they stand,
And they wait till we land:
We shall meet on the other side. [Refrain]

4 We shall meet on the other side,
With the One whom our hearts love best;
As we gaze on His face,
All His love we shall trace,
When we meet on the other side. [Refrain]
