1 When I cross the swelling tide,
And the gates swing open wide,
‘Twill be joy to meet my Saviour first of all;
When the saints my welcome sing,
And the harps of heaven ring,
‘Twill be joy to meet my Saviour first of all.

Refrain:
‘Twill be joy, ‘twill be joy,
‘Twill be joy to meet my Saviour first of all;
‘Twill be joy, ‘twill be joy,
‘Twill be joy to meet my Saviour first of all.

2 When the city I shall see,
Where I’ll spend eternity,
‘Twill be joy to meet my Saviour first of all;
When I hear the angel throng
Sing the everlasting song,
‘Twill be joy to meet my Saviour first of all. [Refrain]

3 In that land of endless day,
Where all tears are wiped away,
‘Twill be joy to meet my Saviour first of all;
By the crystal river side,
Where the ransom’d hosts abide,
‘Twill be joy to meet my Saviour first of all. [Refrain]

4 When my life work here is done,
And my starry crown is won,
‘Twill be joy to meet my Saviour first of all;
When I stand before the throne,
Yonder in my happy home,
‘Twill be joy to meet my Saviour first of all. [Refrain]
