Beyond the Swelling Flood

Representative Text

1 Yes, we shall meet beyond the flood,
In robes made white thro’ Jesus’ blood,
And hold sweet converse, free from pain,
Nor ever fear to part again,
Beyond the swelling flood!

Chorus:
Beyond the swelling flood,
Beyond the swelling flood,
Beyond the swelling flood,
We’ll meet to part no more;
We’ll meet to part no more;
We’ll meet to part no more,
We’ll meet to part no more,
Beyond the swelling flood.

2 I care not now what ills may come,
Since hope sustains this thought of home,
And spirit voices softly say,
“Thy God shall wipe all tears away,
Beyond the swelling flood!” [Chorus]

3 That meeting, O how sweetly dear!
\What sounds shall greet the list’ning ear!
What thrills of rapture wake the soul
As back those golden gates shall roll,
Beyond the swelling flood! [Chorus]

4 Dear Saviour, guide my willing feet,
That I may have that joy complete;
And live to praise through endless day
The love that dries all tears away,
Beyond the swelling flood! [Chorus]
