1 Yes, we'll meet beyond the river,
When our conflicts all are o'er;
And we'll spend the blest forever,
On that bright celestial shore.
Yes, we'll meet in yonder mansions,
Where our wand'rings all shall cease,
There we'll meet our dear companions,
And be crown'd with perfect peace.
2 Yes, we'll meet, where bliss immortal,
Sweeter for than rest can be,
And before the throne eternal,
All our earthly triumphs see.
We shall meet, where all is onward,
Ev'ry change, new glories bring;
And the host still moving forward,
Glorify our heavenly King.
3 We shall meet, there, faithful Christian,
When the burden we lay down,
We shall change our cross of anguish
For a bright unfading crown.
We shall meet with Christ our Saviour,
When he comes to claim his own;
We shall know his blessed favor,
And sit down around his throne?
