Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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]
