Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Say Brothers Will You Meet Us?
Subject: Lyr Add: SAY, BROTHERS

Say, brothers, will you meet us?
Say, brothers, will you meet us?
On Canaan's happy shore?

Say, sisters, will you meet us, etc.

By the grace of God we'll meet you
Where parting is no more;
That will be a happy meeting
On Canaan's happy shore.

Jesus lives and reigns forever,
On Canaan's happy shore.
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Forever, evermore!
