The Eastern Gate
Refrain  [1]  [2]  [3]  [4] 
Contemporary
I will meet you (in the morning),
I will meet you (in the morning),
Just inside the eastern Gate over there;
I will meet you (in the morning),
I will meet you (in the morning),
I will meet you in the morning over there.
I will meet you in the morning
Just inside the Eastern Gate;
Then be ready, faithful pilgrim,
Lest with you it be too late.
If you hasten off to glory,
Linger near the Eastern Gate,
For I'm coming in the morning,
So you'll not have long to wait.
Keep your lamps all trimmed and burning,
For the Bridegroom watch and wait;
He'll be with us at the meeting
Just inside the Eastern Gate.
O the joys of that glad meeting
With the saints who for us wait;
What a blessed, happy meeting
Just inside the Eastern Gate.

I will meet you in the morning
Just inside the Eastern Gate;
Then be ready, faithful pilgrim,
Lest with you it be too late.

Refrain
I will meet you (in the morning),
I will meet you (in the morning),
Just inside the eastern Gate over there;
I will meet you (in the morning),
I will meet you (in the morning),
I will meet you in the morning over there.

If you hasten off to glory,
Linger near the Eastern Gate,
For I'm coming in the morning,
So you'll not have long to wait.

Keep your lamps all trimmed and burning,
For the Bridegroom watch and wait;
He'll be with us at the meeting
Just inside the Eastern Gate.

O the joys of that glad meeting
With the saints who for us wait;
What a blessed, happy meeting
Just inside the Eastern Gate.
