1 When I shall cross over the dark rolling tide,
O what a glad meeting there’ll be,
For close by the beautiful pearly white gate,
My loved ones are waiting for me.

Refrain:
Waiting for me, they’re waiting for me,
O what a glad meeting ’twill be!
Waiting for me, they’re waiting for me,
My loved ones are waiting for me.

2 A dear, loving mother now waits on that shore,
To clasp me again to her breast;
She left this world shouting the praises of God,
By angels was carried to rest. [Refrain]

3 Dear father and brothers and kindred have gone,
To dwell in that country so fair;
And while I still linger on time’s troubled shore,
They’re watching and waiting up there. [Refrain]

4 I sometimes get weary and long to go home,
But all of my work is not done;
I’m glad I can labor for Jesus, my Lord,
Till sounds the sweet message, come home. [Refrain]
