Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

178. Coming Bye and Bye

1 A better day is coming,
A morning bright and fair;
If we live right, both day and night,
We’ll have a home up there;
God’s only Son will listen
To ev’ry creature’s sigh;
Have mercy, here and ev’rywhere,
And take us bye and bye.

Coming bye and bye,
Coming bye and bye,
A better day is coming on, the time is drawing nigh;
Coming bye and bye,
Coming bye and bye,
Our days are few—will soon pass thro’,
Its coming bye and bye.

2 A better day is coming,
We cannot say how long,
‘Twill glory be, when we shall see,
The host around the throne;
Then free from want and sorrow,
Our tears will all be dry,
We’ll sing and shine, mid light divine,
In glory bye and bye. [Refrain]

3 A better day is coming,
Come join with me and sing,
The praises of Immanuel,
Our Prophet, Priest and King;
Farewell all earthly pleasures,
The angels from on high,
Will take me home, no more to roam,
‘Tis coming bye and bye. [Refrain]
