Julian H. (Sharp) McNiel, in Singing for Joy, edited by Anthony J. Showalter & John D. Patton (Dalton, Georgia: A. J. Showalter, 1902) (🔊 pdf nwc).

What bright visions come to me
When I think of joys to be,
’Twill be glory when we meet each other there;
Jesus has prepared a home
For us where no harm can come,
’Twill be glory when we meet each other there.

Refrain

’Twill be glory over yonder,
When we meet each other there;
’Twill be glory over yonder,
In that home so bright and fair.

After pilgrim’s paths are trod,
Sharing in the peace of God,
’Twill be glory when we meet each other there;
While the endless ages roll,
Christ’s atoning love extol,
’Twill be glory when we meet each other there.

Refrain

O the bliss that we shall know
With our souls made white as snow,
’Twill be glory when we meet each other there;
We shall praise the holy Lamb,
Chanting loud redemption’s psalm,
’Twill be glory when we meet each other there.

Refrain
