Lyrics

Meet again! when life is o’er
Meet again! to part no more;
How it cheers the drooping heart
When from friends we’re called to part.

Refrain

We shall meet, yes, we shall meet
In our home so pure and bright,
Meet where songs shall never grow old,
Sweetly tuned to harps of gold.

Meet again! where endless joy
We shall taste without alloy;
Meet where songs shall ne’er grow old,
Sweetly tuned to harps of gold.

Refrain

Meet again! how passing sweet
Friends long lost again to meet;
Careworn souls by tempest driv’n,
Oh, how sweet to meet in Heav’n.
