Representative Text

1 We’ll meet again the “lov’d and lost”
Where partings rend the heart no more;
When we Death’s mystic stream have cross’d
And moor’d our barks to yonder shore.

O yes, we’ll meet them on that shore,
We’ll meet where parting is no more,
All sorrows past, all grief and pain;
On that blest shore we’ll meet again.

2 How sweet the welcome to that land;
The radiant smile on each dear face;
The thrilling pressure of the hand,
The sudden joy, the long embrace. [Refrain]

3 That happy meeting will atone
For all our unavailing tears
While treading life’s rude path alone
Thro’ many weary, joyless years. [Refrain]

4 The lov’d, not lost! what bliss to meet
And join with them in heav’n’s employ;
The dear Lord’s praise, communion sweet,
And songs of everlasting joy! [Refrain]
