1 Will you meet me in the morning,
On that bright and golden shore?
Will your lamp be trimmed and burning,
When He comes to take you o’er?

Yes, I’ll meet you in the morning,
When I hear, the Savior’s call,
“Come, ye blessed of my Father,
To a home prepared for all.”

2 Oh, to meet on that bright morning,
When the clouds have passed away!
Oh, to walk and talk with Jesus,
There to dwell with Him for aye.

3 When we meet our loving Saviour,
What a happy hour ‘twill be,
When we’re gathered with our loved ones,
And their happy faces see. [Refrain]

4 Oh, this thought should make us happy,
And we all should love Him more,
For He’ll come, and will not tarry,
Come to bear us safely o’er. [Refrain]
