1. Will you meet me in the Homeland,
Shall we both reach Heav’n at last,
When the training days are ended,
And life’s journeys all are past?

Refrain
Will you meet me there?
Will you meet me there?
’Tis the Savior bids you come;
Will you meet me there?
Will you meet me there?
He can take us safely home.

2. Will you meet me in the glory,
Shall we both together stand
’Mid the company of saved ones,
In that blood-bought, happy band? [Refrain]

3. We are never sure of meeting
Anywhere beneath the sun,
But we look for glad reunion,
When our earthly life is done. [Refrain]

4. He has promised soon to take me
Where the King shall fill my gaze,
Will your voice with mine be blended
In that perfect hymn of praise? [Refrain]
