Lyrics

I hope to meet you all in glo­ry,
When the storms of life are o’er;
I hope to tell the dear old story,
On the blessèd shining shore.

Refrain

On the shining shore,
On the golden strand,
In our Fa­ther’s home,
In the happy land:
I hope to meet you there,
I hope to meet you there—
A crown of vic­to­ry wear—
In glo­ry.

I hope to meet you all in glo­ry,
By the tree of life so fair;
I hope to praise our dear Re­deem­er
For the grace that brought me there.

Refrain

I hope to meet you all in glo­ry,
Round the Sav­ior’s throne above;
I hope to join the ransomed army
Singing now redeeming love.

Refrain

I hope to meet you all in glo­ry,
When my work on earth is o’er;
I hope to clasp your hands rejoicing
On the bright eter­nal shore.
