Written by Ray Scarbrough
In a small upper chamber,
Jesus asked them to remember;
As he broke the bread
& blessed their final day.
For his time had come for leavin’;
And although he left him grievin’;
He said, I’ll return to take you far away.
We’ll meet again…
On the other side of Jordan;
There will be a brand new mornin’
in that land,
Walk hand in hand.
We’ll forget what pain has been.
We’ll rejoice for death shall end.
We’ll meet again.
If some moming you awaken;
And the news has left you shaken;
That I’ve closed my eyes in death
& passed away.
Don’t pay no mind to my coldness;
Let me say with Christian boldness;
I will meet you on that sweet homecoming day.
