Lyrics

Verse 1
When on earth no more we gather, when this life is o’er,
When our barks have left earth’s moorings for the other shore;
When upon this earthly footstool we no longer stay,
Will you meet me in the morning at the gates of day?

Chorus
Yes, I’ll meet you up in heaven when this life is past,
When the worn and weary pilgrims gather home at last;
Where the light of God is streaming in a fadeless ray,
I will meet you in the morning at the gates of day.

Verse 2
When no more in this dear temple we each other greet,
When on earth no more we worship in communion sweet;
When this life and all its troubles shall have pass’d away,
Will you meet me in the morning at the gates of day?

Verse 3
Here on earth we leave each other, best of friends must part,
Tho’ at times our hearts are breaking and the tear-drops start;
But from that bright land of beauty we will never stray,
Will you meet me in the morning at the gates of day?

Verse 4
Here we talk about the Saviour who for us hath died,
Here we long to sing the praises of the Crucified;
Shall we in that golden country live with him alway?
Will you meet me in the morning at the gates of day?
