Lyrics

In the morn of morns when we all meet there,
In the home fair above the sky,
We’ll recall the scenes we have left behind,
But we never will say goodbye.

Refrain

In the dawning of the morning,
In that home far above the sky;
Happy meeting, happy greeting,
When we never say goodbye.

Never sadness there, neither grief nor tear,
In that beautiful home on high!
But they swell the song, happy ransomed throng,
And they never will say goodbye.

Refrain

With our kindred dear, in that home of love,
While the ages eternal fly,
We will meet and sing at the Savior’s feet,
But we never will say goodbye.
