Matthew 8:11
And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west,
and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

          I will meet you in the morning, by the bright riverside,
          When all sorrow has drifted away;
          I'll be standing at the portals, when the gates open wide,
          At the close of life's long, dreary day.

            Chorus
            I'll meet                         you in the morning
                (Meet you in the morning           meet you in the morning,)
            With a "How                   do you do?
                        ("How do you do"           "How do you do")
            And we'll sit down                       by the river
                           (sit down by the river,             sit down by the river,)
            And with rapture "auld" acquaintance renew;
                          (Rapture         our           "auld" acquaintance renew;)
            You'll know                          me in the morning
                    (Know me in the morning               know me in the morning)
            By the smiles                   that I wear
                    (Smiles that I wear                 smiles that I wear,)
            When I meet you                       in the morning
                        (Meet you in the morning,       meet you in the morning,)
            In the city that is built           foursquare.
                      (City ,         city built, that         city built foursquare)

          I will meet you in the morning, in the sweet by and by,
          And exchange the old cross for a crown;
          There will be no disappointments and nobody shall die,
          In that land, when life's sun goeth down.

            Chorus
            I'll meet                         you in the morning
                (Meet you in the morning           meet you in the morning,)
            With a "How                   do you do?
                        ("How do you do"           "How do you do")
            And we'll sit down                       by the river
                           (sit down by the river,             sit down by the river,)
            And with rapture "auld" acquaintance renew;
                          (Rapture         our           "auld" acquaintance renew;)
            You'll know                          me in the morning
                    (Know me in the morning               know me in the morning)
            By the smiles                   that I wear
                    (Smiles that I wear                 smiles that I wear,)
            When I meet you                       in the morning
                        (Meet you in the morning,       meet you in the morning,)
            In the city that is built           foursquare.
                      (City ,         city built, that         city built foursquare)

          I will meet you in the morning, at the end of the way,
          On the streets of that city of gold;
          Where we all can be together and be happy for aye,
          While the years and the ages shall roll.

            Chorus
            I'll meet                         you in the morning
                (Meet you in the morning           meet you in the morning,)
            With a "How                   do you do?
                        ("How do you do"           "How do you do")
            And we'll sit down                       by the river
                           (sit down by the river,             sit down by the river,)
            And with rapture "auld" acquaintance renew;
                          (Rapture         our           "auld" acquaintance renew;)
            You'll know                          me in the morning
                    (Know me in the morning               know me in the morning)
            By the smiles                   that I wear
                    (Smiles that I wear                 smiles that I wear,)
            When I meet you                       in the morning
                        (Meet you in the morning,       meet you in the morning,)
            In the city that is built           foursquare.
                      (City ,         city built, that         city built foursquare)
