1 By and by I know there’ll be, by the shining crystal sea,
Such a glad home-gath’ring, by and by;
When we walk the golden strand in that bright and blessed land,
At the glad home-gath’ring by and by.

Refrain:
There will be a glad home-gath’ring by and by,
There will be a glad home-gath’ring by and by;
When the Lord shall bid us come to His bright, celestial home,
To the glad home-gath’ring by and by.

2 Friend with friend again will meet, O the welcome will be sweet,
At the glad home-gath’ring by and by;
We shall meet to part no more, on that fair and blissful shore,
At the glad home-gath’ring by and by. [Refrain]

3 Christ the Lamb shall be our light, we shall walk with Him in white,
At the glad home-gath’ring by and by;
He will wipe away our tears, he will banish all our fears,
At the glad home-gath’ring by and by. [Refrain]

4 There’s an invitation free, and it comes to you and me,
To the glad home-gath’ring by and by;
“Whosoever will” may share in the joyful meeting there,
At the glad home-gath’ring by and by. [Refrain]

5 Praise the Lord! I’m going too, now by faith the scene I view,
At the glad home-gath’ring by and by;
By His grace and mercy free, with the ransomed I will be,
At the glad home-gath’ring by and by. [Refrain]
