Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

I hope to meet you there some day

Representative Text

1 When I have reach'd the soul's bright land,
I hope to meet you there some day;
When I before the throne shall stand,
I hope to meet you there some day.

I hope to meet you there my brother, my sister,
And stand with the saints in white array;
When I have reach'd my Father's home in heaven,
I hope to meet you there some day.

2 When I shall walk the golden street,
I hope to meet you there some day;
Among the friends that I shall greet,
I hope to meet you there someday. [Chorus]

3 Where sin can harm our souls no more,
I hope to meet you there some day;
Upon the bright eternal shore,
I hope to meet you there some day. [Chorus]

4 Where tears no more will dim the eye,
I hope to meet you there some day;
Where we will never say "Goodbye,"
I hope to meet you there some day. [Chorus]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856.

Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill.
