Full Text

1 Will you meet me in the Homeland,
Shall we both reach heav’n at last,
When the training days are ended,
And life’s journeys all are past?

Refrain:
Will you meet me there?
Will you meet me there?
’Tis the Saviour bids you come;
Will you meet me there?
Will you meet me there?
He can take us safely Home.

2 Will you meet me in the glory,
Shall we both together stand
’Mid the company of sav’d ones,
In that blood-bought, happy band? [Refrain]

3 We are never sure of meeting
Anywhere beneath the sun,
But we look for glad reunion,
When our earthly life is done. [Refrain]

4 Shall we both together see Him,
Shall we serve Him side by side,
With His ransomed, happy servants,
Whom He wash’d and sanctified? [Refrain]

5 He has promised soon to take me
Where the King will fill my gaze,
Will your voice with mine be blended
In that perfect hymn of praise? [Refrain]
