We’ll Meet Beyond the Grave 344

Tune: Arranged by W. C. Givens, 1907
Lyrics: W. C. Hafley, 1886
Meter: 8s,7s Iambic (8,7,8,7)
Beyond the golden sunset sky,
Beyond the old rolling wave,
Beyond each earthly tear and sigh,
We'll meet just beyond the grave.


We'll meet, yes, we'll meet on that shining shore,
We'll meet in that home of love;
We'll meet, yes, meet to part no more,
We shall meet in heaven above.

Beyond these pangs that parting brings,
Beyond all this earthly vale,
We'll meet where joys eternal spring,
And love there shall never fail.


Our refuge is the Lord our God,
His life for us all He gave,
He gave that life that we might live,
And yet He alone can save.
