Representative Text

1 We shall meet beyond the river,
We shall meet, we shall meet;
Where no change of time can sever,
We shall meet each other there.

Chorus:
We shall meet, we shall meet,
We shall meet beyond the river,
We shall meet, we shall meet,
We shall meet each other there.

2 We shall join the heavenly chorus,
When we meet, when we meet;
With the loved ones gone before us,
When we meet each other there. [Chorus]

3 Thro’ the love of Christ, our Saviour,
We shall meet, we shall meet;
Where we’ll sing His praise forever,
When we meet each other there. [Chorus]
