1. If I should be living when Jesus comes,
And could know the day and the hour,
I’d like to be standing at mother’s tomb
When Jesus comes in His power.

Refrain
’Twill be a wonderful, happy day,
Up there on the golden strand,
When I can hear Jesus my Savior say,
Shake hands with mother again.

2. I’d like to say, Mother, this is your boy,
You left when you went away;
And now, my dear mother, it gives me great joy
To see you again today. [Refrain]

3. There’s coming a time when I can go home
To meet my loved ones up there;
There I can see Jesus upon His throne
In that bright city so fair. [Refrain]

4. There’ll be no more sorrow or pain to bear
In that home beyond the sky;
A glorious thought when we all get there,
We never will say, goodbye. [Refrain]]
