Posted Au­gust 20, 2012, in hon­or of my fa­ther, Jim Ad­ams, who passed away this eve­n­ing at the age of 91. A strong be­liev­er, he was a shin­ing ex­am­ple of faith and ser­vice. We look for­ward to the day when we will see him again.

Lyrics

We shall meet you again when the sorrows of night
Forever have vanished away;
We shall stand by your side in His glory and light,
Oh, that beautiful, wonderful shadowless day.

We shall know in that throng, as they sing of His praise,
The sound of your voice once again,
Free fore’er from the trials of these wearisome days—
Away from all misery, sorrow and pain.

Haste the glorious day, when our Lord shall return,
No longer apart we shall roam,
All our loved ones in Christ we shall surely discern—
At rest in His presence, forever at home.
