We…shall be caught up …to meet the Lord in the air.@1 Thessalonians 4:17

Isaiah G. Martin, 1906 (🔊 pdf nwc).

There is soon to be a meeting
With our Savior in the air,
For He’s gone to realms of glory,
There our mansions to prepare;
He is coming back to meet us,
With a host of angels fair,
And there’s sure to be some shouting
When we all meet there.

Refrain


When we all meet there,
At the meeting in the air,
There is sure to be some shouting
When we all meet there;
When we all meet there,
At the meeting in the air,
There is sure to be some shouting
When we all meet there.

See the patriarchs and prophets
Coming forth from bursting tombs,
They are coming to this meeting,
And they’re coming very soon;
There comes Abraham and Isaac,
With their kindred everywhere,
There is sure to be some shouting
When we all get there.

Refrain

There is Moses from Mount Nebo,
There is Daniel from the Cave,
They are marching in the forefront,
While the hosts their banners wave;
O what joy to see them coming,
To the meeting in the air!
There is sure to be some shouting
When they all get there.

Refrain

Still they gather, see them coming,
From the mission fields afar,
With the pilgrims from all nations,
And the martyrs in the war;
See St. Paul, the great apostle,
In his robes made white and fair,
I am sure there’ll be some shouting
When they all get there.

Refrain

Are you ready for the meeting
With our Savior in the air?
If your heart is pure and holy,
You will be no stranger there;
He is coming soon, my brother,
With a host of angels fair,
And I’m sure there’ll be some shouting
When we all meet there.

Refrain
