Lyrics

When my weary feet reach the shining goal,
And the Master’s voice greets my raptured soul;
Where the waves of joy shall around me roll,
O say, will you meet me there?

Refrain

Say, will you meet me there?
Say, will you meet me there?
In the home above, in the land of love,
O say, will you meet me there?

When I sweetly rest on that peaceful shore,
Where the blight of sin shall be felt no more;
When I find the loved ones who’ve gone before,
O say, will you meet me there?

Refrain

When I stand at last with the white-robed throng,
To adore my king, and His praise prolong;
When my voice shall join in the glad, new song,
O say, will you meet me there?
