Subject: Will The Old Family Circle Be United Up There

Anyone know this. I heard it as a child in the 40s and 50s in NC I can’t find it anywhere.

In an old fashioned cabin we were seated one night.
By an old fashioned fireside that was burning so bright
With Father and Mother and Sister so dear
Will the old family circle be United up there.

Chorus
Will the old family circle be United up there
In that beautiful city called heaven so fair
With Father and Mother and Sister so dear
Will the old family circle be United up there

God gave his own dear son and to die on the cross
That no one should perish and that no one be lost
Oh have you received him and his blessings share
Will the old family circle be united up there

With the burdens of this life and the trials lay down
I’ve a home over yonder with a robe and a crown
that Jesus has gone on up there to prepare
Will the old family circle be United up there
