1 Why lament the Christian dying?
Why indulge in tears or gloom?
Calmly on the Lord relying
He can greet the opening tomb.
We'll meet again, by and by!
We'll meet again, by and by;
In the realms of endless glory
We shall meet, yes, by and by.
2 Scenes seraphic, high and glorious,
Now forbid his longer stay;
See him rise, o'er death victorious!
Angels beckon him away. [Refrain]
3 Hark! the golden harps are ringing!
Sounds unearthly fill his ear;
Millions now in heaven singing,
Greet his joyful entrance there. [Refrain]
