Will you meet us?
by William Steffe

This is a traditional American camp song. The tune originally used with this song was later used for many popular songs, including "John Brown's Body" and "Battle Hymn of the Republic". This edition is from The African Methodist Episcopal Hymn and Tune Book[1], 6th ed., 1902

Say brothers, will you meet us,
Say brothers, will you meet us,
Say brothers, will you meet us,
On Canaan's happy shore?

By the grace of God we'll meet you,
By the grace of God we'll meet you,
By the grace of God we'll meet you,
Where parting is no more.

Jesus lives and reigns for ever,
Jesus lives and reigns for ever,
Jesus lives and reigns for ever,
On Canaan's happy shore.

Glory, glory, hallelujah,
Glory, glory, hallelujah,
Glory, glory, hallelujah,
For ever, evermore.
