Let us pass over unto the other side.@Mark 4:35

What a happy meeting there will be,
When the loved ones gone before,
Shall the portals crowd their friend to see,
Upon the golden shore.

Refrain

What a meeting and a greeting,
What a meeting and a greeting,
Upon the golden shore!
What a meeting and a greeting,
What a meeting and a greeting,
When we meet to part no more!

Soon our feet will press the heav’nly strand,
When this earthly life is o’er,
Very soon will greet the heav’nly band,
Upon the golden shore.

Refrain

Hark! the voice of greeting in that clime,
Hark! they sing in heav’nly lore,
The angelic hosts their praises chime,
Upon the golden shore.

Refrain

With the shining hosts the loved ones stand,
Where sad parting comes no more,
Waiting there to clasp their loved one’s hand,
Upon the golden shore.

Refrain
