Shake Hands with Mother Again

If I should be living when Jesus comes

and should know the day and the hour;

I’d like to be standing at Mother’s tomb

when Jesus comes in His pow’r.

 

CHORUS

‘Twill be a wonderful happy day,

up there on the golden strand;

when I can hear Jesus my Savior say,

“Shake hands with Mother again.”

I’d like to say “Mother, this is your boy,

you left when you went away;

and now, my dear Mother, it gives me great joy

to see you again today.”

There’s coming a time when I can go home,

to meet my loved ones up there;

where I can see Jesus upon His throne,

in that bright city so fair.

There’ll be no more sorrow or pain to bear,

in that home beyond the sky;

a glorious thought when we all get there,

we never will say “goodbye.”

CHORUS

‘Twill be a wonderful happy day,

up there on the golden strand;

when I can hear Jesus my Savior say,

“Shake hands with Mother again.”
