Lyrics

I am on my journey home,
Where my Sav­ior beckons, Come,
And the saints no more shall roam,
Meet me there;
Where the many mansions are,
And no sickness enters there,
Where the skies are always fair,
Meet me there.

Refrain

Meet me there, meet me there,
Over in the land of promise,
Meet me there;
On the bright and sunny shore,
With our loved ones gone before,
And with those now crossing o’er,
Meet me there.

In that land beyond the sky,
There will be no pain or sigh,
Tears shall ne­ver dim the eye,
Meet me there;
Oh, the joy of meeting there,
Where no heart is bowed with care,
And each mind is freed from fear,
Meet me there.

Refrain

Soon our trials will be o’er,
And we’ll stand on Canaan’s shore,
Safe with those who’ve gone before;
Meet me there;
There the saints shall ne­ver part,
Sorrow ne’er shall rend the heart;
Will you now to glo­ry start?
Meet me there.

Refrain

What a meeting there will be,
When our Sav­ior’s face we’ll see,
And with loved ones ever be;
Meet me there.
To that land let’s travel on,
Till we stand before the throne,
And receive a shining crown;
Meet me there.

Refrain
