Verse 1: I will meet you in the morning, by the bright river side, When all sorrow has drifted away; I’ll be standing at the portals, when the gates open wide, At the close of life’s long, dreary day.
Verse 2: I will meet you in the morning, in the sweet by and by, And exchange the old cross for a crown; There will be no disappointments and nobody shall die, In that land, when life’s sun goeth down.
Verse 3: I will meet you in the morning, at the end of the way, On the streets of that City of gold; Where we all can be together and be happy for aye, While the years and the ages shall roll.
Chorus: I’ll meet you in the morning, with a “How do you do?” and we’ll sit down by the river, And with rapture “auld” acquaintance renew; You’ll know me in the morning, By the smiles that I wear, When I meet you in the morning, In the City that is built foursquare.
