8790. By And By

1 Over Jordan we shall meet,
By and by, by and by;
In that happy land so sweet,
By and by;
We shall gather on the shore,
With our kindred gone before,
And the Savior’s name adore,
By and by.

2 All our sorrows shall be past,
By and by, by and by;
We shall reach our home at last,
By and by;
With the ransomed we shall stand,
There a holy, happy band,
Crowned with glory in that land,
By and by.

3 We shall join the heav’nly choir,
By and by, by and by;
We shall strike the golden lyre,
By and by;
In our home so bright and fair,
Where the happy angels are,
We shall praise forever there,
By and by.

4 There we’ll join the ransomed throng,
By and by, by and by;
Chanting love’s redeeming song,
By and by;
There we’ll meet before the throne,
Then we’ll lay our trophies down,
And receive a shining crown,
By and by.
