Lyrics
There’s a light on a hillside
That shines to guide the traveler back home
That same light was on the pathway
When you made that final journey on your own.

Life goes on, but not the same,
There’s an aching at the mention of your name.
But our broken hearts will mend
When we meet you at the gathering of friends.

There is music on that hillside,
There are angels in a song that never ends
There is hope will be together
When we join you at the gathering of friends.

And our eyes will have no tears
When there’s no more sadness, nothing left to fear.
We’ll know joy that never ends
When we meet you at the gathering of friends.

‘til we stand on that hillside
We’ll take all the joy and sadness each day sends.
Then the one who knows our heartache
Will call us to the gathering of friends

And our hearts will laugh again
When the one who loves us gently calls our name.
We’ll know joy that never ends,
When we meet you at the gathering of friends.

We’ll know joy that never ends,
When we meet you at the gathering of friends.
