Lyrics

When from the scenes of earth we rise,
To find our home beyond the skies,
What visions then shall greet our eyes,
When we shall be with Jesus!

Refrain

To be with Jesus, O how sweet!
With saints and angels at His feet,
With songs we shall each other greet,
And ever be with Jesus.

The storms of life will all be o’er,
Our souls be tempest tossed no more,
When we have reached the golden shore,
For we shall be with Jesus.

Refrain

Redeemed from sin and saved by grace,
We shall behold His blessèd face,
The wonders of His love to trace,
As we shall be with Jesus.

Refrain

With Him in glory e’er to stay,
Where founts of living waters play,
And sorrow’s tears are wiped away,
Forevermore with Jesus.
