When shall we all meet again?
When shall we all meet again?
Oft shall glowing hope expire,
Oft shall wearied love retire,
Oft shall death and sorrow reign,
When shall we all meet again?

Tho’ in distant lands we sigh
Parch’d beneath the burning sky,
Tho’ the deep between us rolls,
Friendship shall unite our souls;
Still in fancy’s rich domain,
Oft shall we all meet again.


When the dreams of life are fled,
When it’s wasted lamp is dead,
When in cold oblivions shade
Beauty, wealth and pow’r are laid,
Where immortal spirits reign,
There shall we all meet again.
