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]
