1 When our pilgrimage is o’er,
And we reach the other shore,
And our robes and crowns we’ll wear, by and by;
This the thought that comes to me,
Borne on wings from o’er the sea:
Shall we know each other there, by and by?
Yes, we’ll know each other there,
In that home so bright and fair;
Yes, we’ll know each other there, by and by;
’Tis a glorious thought to me,
In that home beyond the sea,
We shall know each other there, by and by.
2 When before our Father’s throne
We will meet the loved ones gone,
In that land so bright and fair, over there;
They are singing songs of love,
In that home prepared above;
Shall we know each other there, by and by? [Refrain]
3 There we’ll see the Savior’s face,
In that bright and happy place,
And His glory we shall share, by and by;
Far beyond this mortal sight,
Shines a bright and golden light,
And we’ll know each other there, by and by. [Refrain]

Beautiful Home Somewhere
