We will meet our loved ones dear
Where the crystal rivers flow,
If we’re faithful while we’re here,
And the dear Redeemer know.


There we’ll see the crystal river,
And the streets all paved with gold;
Then we’ll sing redemption’s story,
Where there’s joy and love untold.

For we read that Jesus said:
I will now prepare a home,
Where the wedding feast is spread,
And the weary ones may come.


Then we’ll sing forevermore,
’Round the great and dazzling throne,
There all partings will be o’er,
In our Father’s house at home.
