Full Text

1 When shall we all meet again?
When shall we all meet again?
Oft shall glowing hope expire,
Oft shall wearied love retire,
Oft shall death and sorrow reign,
Ere we all shall meet again.

2 Though on foreign shore we sigh,
Far remote our native sky;
Though the depth between us roll,
Hope shall anchor there our soul,
And in faith's well-known domain,
Within the vail, we'll meet again.

3 When the dreams of life are fled,
When its wasted lamps are dead,
When in cold oblivion's shade
Beauty, wealth, and fame are laid,
Where immortal spirits reign,
Thither soar, to meet again!
