Until We Meet Again

Artist: Showbread

Album: The Fear of God

I was listening to The Fear of God–one of my favorite CDs–as I drove alone in the car today, and when this song came up, for some reason I started to tear up. Just something about the words…they’re just a wonderful blend of hopeful homesickness, and something really made them come alive for me today, emotionally. I think something in me realized that going to heaven and finally being home and at rest with those I love will be such a beautiful relief.

My dearest friend, if I sing you this song, will you hear it from up in heaven?
I’m still down here in this ugly place, but up there’s where I’m heading
When they tell you I’m coming, please wait for me in front of the house that I’ll live in
And when Jesus walks me up to the door, I can finally see you again

It’s true that my heart was broken in two on the day I said goodbye to you
And I carry an ache in my chest until Jesus makes everything new

Those that we loved that left before us must have been thrilled beyond words
when you ran through the gates and into the kingdom and up to the feet of my Lord
Once sick and frail, once weak and pale, now made perfect and new
No more aching and crying, or breaking and dying
Finally home in the arms of who loves you

When you run and you play in the light of the Son, hold me in your heart and mind
I don’t know how and I don’t know when, but I’m leaving this cold place behind
How my heart aches to think of the day when my faith shall finally be sight
When the crowds will part and cheer as I come, as I walk through toward the light

And my father, my love, Jesus, my king, in His glory, seated on His throne
He’ll take me in His arms as the crowds cheer and sing
and say, “Well done child, welcome home.”
And He’ll walk me to the house that He built
with the father’s love and the carpenter’s touch
And you’ll run to me and I’ll hold you again, my friend, I have missed you so much
