There'll be a great gathering in the sky
When all of God's children get home
We'll join the happy millions as they sing there
Around the great white throne.

I'm speakin' of a big camp meetin'
Where we never shall say goodbye
I'm longin' for the day when I hear my Saviour
Say there's a gathering in the sky.

One by one we pass through the valley den
Our load seems hard to bear
But I'm goin' to a great reunion
Where people's not afraid of prayer.

There'll be a lot of old time singing
Somewhere up there on high
It seems that I can hear them sayin'
There's a gathering in the sky.

There'll be a great gathering in the sky
When all of God's children get home
We'll join the happy millions as they sing there
Around the great white throne.

I'm speakin' of a big camp meetin'
Where we never shall say goodbye
I'm longin' for the day when I hear my Saviour
Say there's a gathering in the sky.

There'll be a great gathering in the sky
When all of God's children get home
We'll join the happy millions as they sing there
Around the great white throne.

I'm speakin' of a big camp meetin'
Where we never shall say goodbye
I'm longin' for the day when I hear my Saviour
Say there's a gathering in the sky...
