When our pilgrimage is o’er,
And we reach the other shore,
And our robes and crowns we’ll wear, by and by;
This the thought that comes to me,
Borne on wings from o’er the sea:
Shall we know each other there, by and by?

Refrain

Yes, we’ll know each other there,
In that home so bright and fair;
Yes, we’ll know each other there, by and by;
’Tis a glorious thought to me,
In that home beyond the sea,
We shall know each other there, by and by.

When before our Father’s throne
We will meet the loved ones gone,
In that land so bright and fair, over there;
They are singing songs of love,
In that home prepared above;
Shall we know each other there, by and by?

Refrain

There we’ll see the Savior’s face,
In that bright and happy place,
And His glory we shall share, by and by;
Far beyond this mortal sight,
Shines a bright and golden light,
And we’ll know each other there, by and by.

Refrain
