Meet me there! Oh, meet me there!
In the heav’nly world so fair,
Where our Lord has entered in,
And there comes no taint of sin;
With our friends of long ago,
Clad in raiment white as snow,
Such as all the ransomed wear—
Meet me there! Yes, meet me there!

Meet me there! Oh, meet me there!
Far beyond this world of care;
When this troubled life shall cease,
Meet me where is perfect peace;
Where our sorrows we lay down
For the kingdom and the crown,
Jesus doth a home prepare—
Meet me there! Yes, meet me there!

Meet me there! Oh, meet me there!
No bereavement we shall bear;
There no sighings for the dead,
There no farewell tear is shed;
We shall, safe from all alarms,
Clasp our loved ones in our arms,
And in Jesus’ glory share—
Meet me there! Yes, meet me there!
