God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.@1 John 5:11

James W. Jaggars, in New Songs of Praise, by Alfred E. Helton et al. (Lenoir, North Carolina: Teachers’ Music Publishing Company, 1913), number 121.

George W. Bacon (🔊 pdf nwc).

When I cross death’s silent river
I shall find my loved ones there,
Waiting for me, waiting for me;
Those who’ve gone so long before me,
And Christ’s blessings fully share,
Waiting for me, waiting for me.

Refrain

Waiting for me, waiting for me;
I shall see them when I cross the wonderful sea;
I shall join the snow-white angels,
There to live eternally,
Waiting for me, waiting for me.

Oft I think of my dear father
Who now lives on that blest shore,
Waiting for me, waiting for me;
With what gladness he will welcome,
When my life’s work here is o’er!
Waiting for me, waiting for me.

Refrain

I can almost hear the singing
Of redeemed ones in that land,
Waiting for me, waiting for me;
And I know that will be glory,
When I join that happy band.
Waiting for me, waiting for me.

Refrain
