115. Coming By and By

1 A better day is coming,
A morning promised long,
When girded right, with holy might,
Will overthrow the wrong;
When God the Lord will listen
To every plaintive sigh,
And stretch his hand o'er every land
With justice by and by.

Refrain:
Coming by and by, coming by and by,
The better day is coming,
The morning draweth nigh;
Coming by and by, coming by and by!
The welcome dawn will hasten on,
'Tis coming by and by.

2 The boast of haughty error
No more will fill the air,
But age and youth will love the truth,
And spread it everywhere;
No more from want and sorrow
Will come the hopeless cry;
And strife will cease, and perfect peace
Will flourish by and by.

3 O for that holy dawning
We watch, and wait, and pray,
Till o'er the height the morning light
Shall drive the gloom away;
And when the heavenly glory
Shall flood the earth and sky,
We'll bless the Lord for all his word,
And praise him by and by.
