by Stephen Collins Foster (1826 - 1864)

We'll all meet our Savior
Language: English 
We'll all meet our Savior, if we keep his sacred word, 
'Tis the promise of the Lord, the promise of the Lord, 
We'll all meet our Savior, if we keep his sacred word, 
'Tis the promise of the Lord.  Amen. 

Then we'll live with the angels where no sin can ever come, 
In a fair and happy home, a fair and happy home; 
And we'll sing heavenly praises where no sin can ever come, 
In a fair and happy home. Amen. 

He has come from among us with a halo round him bright, 
To a land of love and light, a land of love and light, 
He has gone and he calls us with a halo round him bright,
And we'll hearken to his call. Amen.

He is called our Redeemer for he suffered for us all, 
That no penitent should fall, no penitent should fall; 
He is called our Redeemer for he suffered for us all. 
And we'll hearken to his call. Amen.
