16030. Shall We Know Her?

1 Shall we know our dear grand­mo­ther,
Where sad partings are un­known?
When we’re called across death’s ri­ver,
Shall we find our love, our own?

Oh, yes, grandma, we shall meet you,
When our toils on earth are o’er;
And again we’ll kindly greet you,
When we reach that peace­ful shore.

2 Shall we know her in the morn­ing,
When we join the love­ly band?
Will she greet us at our com­ing,
With a loving, out­stretched hand? [Refrain]

3 Will she say, My love, come hi­ther,
I have watched and longed for thee?
Shall we share Heav’n’s joys to­ge­ther,
Throughout all eter­ni­ty? [Refrain]
