1 By and by, beyond the river,
We shall wear an angel crown,
And forever and forever,
With the Lord of life sit down;
Oh! the rapture that comes o'er me,
With the thought so grand and sweet,
There is rest beyond the river,
We shall sit at Jesus' feet.
2 There shall sorrow vex us never;
There shall weeping never come!
There, forever and forever,
We shall be with Christ at home!
Never sighing, never sorrow!
Oh! the thought is very sweet,
Never care to bear nor borrow,
Sitting at the Savior's feet.
3 Home for ev'ry child immortal,
I shall reach you by and by!
I shall enter at the portal,
Of the gateway, broad and high.
And I know in that fair city,
Friends and kindred I shall meet,
And—oh blessed thought of rapture—
Shall sit down and Jesus' feet.
