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.

Chorus:
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. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. 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.
