We Will Meet

Full Text

1 Farewell, dear friends, a long farewell,
Since we shall meet no more,
Till we shall rise with thee to dwell
On heaven’s blissful shore.

Refrain:
We will meet you in the morning,
Where the shadows pass away;
We will meet, we will meet,
We will meet over there;
We will meet you in the morning,
Where all tears are wiped away.

2 Our friend and sister, lo! is dead,
Her cold and lifeless clay
Has made in dust its silent bed,
And there it must decay. [Refrain]

3 But is she dead? No, no, she lives;
Her happy spirit flies
To heav’n above and there receives
Her long-expected prize. [Refrain]

4 In robes of pure and precious love
Her virgin soul is dressed,
And all the angel hosts above
Rejoice to see her blest. [Refrain]

5 Farewell, dear friends, again farewell;
Soon we shall rise to thee,
On wings of love with Christ to dwell,
Through all eternity. [Refrain]
