125. Triumph By and by

1 The prize is set before us,
To win his words implore us,
The eye of God is o'er us,
From on high;
His loving tones are calling,
While sin is dark, appalling;
'Tis Jesus gently calling,
He is nigh.

Chorus:
By and by we shall meet him,
By and by we shall greet him,
And with Jesus reign in glory, by and by.

2 We'll follow where he leadeth,
We'll pasture where he feedeth,
We'll yield to him who pleadeth
From on high;
Then naught from him shall sever,
Our hopes shall brighten ever,
And faith shall fail us never,
He is nigh.
[Chorus]

3 Our home is bright above us,
No trials dark to move us,
But Jesus, dear, to love us,
There on high;
We'll give him best endeavor,
And praise his name forever;
His precious ones can never,
Never die.
[Chorus]
