What a meeting that will be

Representative Text

1 What a meeting that will be,
When our course is finished here,
And we pass with angels bright,
Where the skies are ever clear!

What a meeting, what a meeting,
With the dear ones gone before!
What a meeting, happy meeting,
On the bright and golden shore!

2 What a meeting that will be,
With the good of ages past,
Who their barks have safely moor'd
Where there comes no stormy blast! [Chorus]

3 What a meeting that will be,
When the Savior's face we view,
And with all the ransomed join
In the song forever new! [Chorus]
