This Life Will Soon Be Ended


This life will soon be ended,
A few more doubts and fears,
Then we will be forever
Beyond this vale of tears;
My Saviour has gone over,
A mansion to prepare,
So when we cross the river,
Oh, won’t you meet me there?

Refrain:
Oh, won’t you meet me there?
Oh, won’t you meet me there?
In that eternal City
Where all is bright and fair?
I’m going home to glory,
A crown of life to wear,
There’s room enough in heaven,
Oh, won’t you meet me there?

There all the walls are jasper,
There all the streets are gold,
But of that city’s beauty
The half has not been told;
For you and me, my brother,
Christ once the cross did bear,
That we might see its glory,
Oh, won’t you meet me there? [Refrain]

Dear sinner, start for glory,
Where all is fair and bright,
Just bow before the Saviour,
He’ll save your soul to-night;
He’ll write your name in heaven,
In answer to your pray’r,
There friends for you are waiting,
Oh, won’t you meet me there? [Refrain]
