Dear friends, how we love to greet you!|
What a joy to clasp your dear hand!
We praise our dear Lord
For His glorious word.
We shall meet in a beautiful land.
It is wondeful to greet our loved ones,|
Meet our friends with love in our hearts.
What a joy to know
We've a place we can go
Where never again shall we part,
For parting will only bring sorrow,|
Leave us lonely and filled with pain.
Think on that day,
When friends go away.
We know we shall meet them again.
So, friends, let us be aweary|
For friends from whom we must part.
Let us all be a friend
And stay to the end
With our love and our God in our heart.
Let our hearts all be filled with gladness.|
Give our praise to the Lord o'er and o'er
Let us shout; let us sing
To our Savior and King
'Till we meet on that beautiful shore.
