1 Again in all His beauty the Lord shall come,
I’m going to meet my Jesus by and by;
To meet His faithful children and call them home,
I’m going to meet my Jesus by and by.

Refrain:
Going by and by, going by and by;
I’ll be there to answer when the Savior calls,
Going to meet Him by and by.

2 How glad will be the morning when I shall rise,
I’m going to meet my Jesus by and by;
To meet my Savior coming from out the skies,
I’m going to meet my Jesus by and by. [Refrain]

3 I’ll hear the trumpet sounding so loud and clear,
I’m going to meet my Jesus by and by;
The day is not far distant, ’tis drawing near,
I’m going to meet my Jesus by and by. [Refrain]

4 Will you be glad to meet Him on that great day?
I’m going to meet my Jesus by and by;
He bids you to be ready, to watch and pray,
I’m going to meet my Jesus by and by. [Refrain]

5 With shouting and hosannas the earth shall ring,
I’m going to meet my Jesus by and by;
And I shall soon behold Him, my Lord, my king,
I’m going to meet my Jesus by and by. [Refrain]
