We shall meet on that beautiful shore;

In the sweet by-and-by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore.

The melodious songs of the blest; And our spirits shall sorrow no moreNot a sigh for the blessing of rest.

We will offer the tribute of praise, For the glorious gift of His love, And the blessings that hallow our

days. 10

HEAR Thy welcome voice

That calls me, Lord, to Thee, For cleansing in Thy precious blood That flowed on Calvary.

I am coming, Lord!

Coming now to Thee!
Wash me,

cleanse me, in the blood,
That flowed on Calvary.
