O Joyous Is The Meeting


Oh, joyous is the meeting
Of Christians here on earth,
And tender is the greeting
Of those of heav’nly birth;
But oh, the sweet communion,
Beyond the starlit sky,
And oh, the glad reunion,
No more to say Goodbye.

Refrain:
No more to say Goodbye,
No more to say Goodbye;
We soon shall meet at Jesus’ feet,
No more to say Goodbye.

With joy we tell the story,
What grace for us has done,
And give the praise and glory,
To God’s beloved Son;
And then we tell each other
Of brighter joys on high,
When we shall meet together,
No more to say Goodbye. [Refrain]

We seek the Savior’s blessing,
We feel His quick’ning pow’r,
While near the cross we’re pressing,
We live one blessed hour;
Tho’ gladly we would linger,
The moments swiftly fly,
But soon we’ll meet together,
No more to say Goodbye. [Refrain]
