When we reach that royal city,
In that land of fadeless day,
When we pass inside the portal
Where the righteous live for aye,
We shall meet our blessèd loved ones
In that land so blessèd fair,
But the Savior in His beauty
Will be first to greet us there.

Refrain

Happy meeting that will be,
Glorious greeting we shall see,
When we pass into that city,
In that city bright and fair;
Happy meeting that will be,
Glorious greeting we shall see,
But the Savior in His beauty
Will be first to greet us there.

When inside that glorious city
In that land of fadeless day,
We will view with holy rapture
All of those in bright array;
But among the saints and angels
There is none so bright and fair
As the Savior in His beauty,
Who’ll be first to greet us there.

Refrain

When the heav’nly choir assembles,
At the throne they’ll gather round,
Heav’n with praises will be ringing,
Hallelujahs will resound;
But the theme of all the music
In which all shall join and share,
Will be Jesus in His beauty,
Who was first to greet us there.

Refrain
