1 Shall we meet beyond the river,
In the clime where angels dwell?
Shall we meet where friendship never
Saddest tales of sorrow tell?

Refrain 1-3:
Shall we meet, shall we meet,
Shall we meet on the evergreen plain?
Shall we meet to know each other ever,
Shall we never part again?

2 Shall we meet where flow’rs are blooming
Ever fadeless, ever fair,
Where the light of day illumines
Lives of those who enter there? [Refrain]

3 Shall we meet our loved companions,
On that brighter, fairer shore,
When this life’s great work is ended,
Shall we meet to part no more? [Refrain]

4 Yes, we’ll meet beyond the river,
Where our joys shall never die,
We shall meet our loved and saved ones,
In that happy by and by.

Refrain 4:
We shall meet, we shall meet,
We shall meet on the evergreen plain;
We shall meet to know each other ever,
We shall never part again.
