Representative Text

1 What a happy meeting when the saints shall come
To the shining portals up on high;
There with earth's redeemed ones to be crowned at home,
On that cloudless morning, by and by.

Refrain:
On that cloudless morning when the saints shall rise,
I'll be there, I'll be there;
In that land of beauty far above the skies,
I'll be there, I'll be there.

2 Then the saints their spotless robes of white shall wear,
Hallelujah to the Lamb shall cry;
On that glorious dawning we their joy shall share,
On that cloudless morning, by and by. [Refrain]

3 To the Lamb once offered but who lives again,
To the One who came to earth to die,
We shall join the ransomed in a glad refrain,
On that cloudless morning, by and by. [Refrain]
