Representative Text

1 When a few more years are blended
With the years that are no more,
When life’s hopes and fears are ended,
And the boatman bears us o’er,
We shall dwell in peace forever,
In a home more bright and fair,
When we meet beyond the river,
We shall know each other there.

2 When we meet the loved and lost ones,
Those we parted from in tears,
When we meet where life glides onward
Undisturbed by hopes and fears,
Where the songs of joy are never
Hushed by hours of pain and care,
Where friends meet no more to sever,
We shall know each other there.

3 Where love, like a mighty river,
Fills each soul with pure delight,
Where no flower shall droop and wither
In the gloom of death’s dark night;
When for us life’s days are ended,
Clothed in forms supremely fair,
We shall meet and rest forever,
And shall know each other there.
