1 By and by we’ll be gathered home,
Gathered home, gathered home;
By and by we’ll be gathered home
To the palace of the King.
Sheltered there we shall no more roam,
No more roam, no more roam;
Sheltered there we shall no more roam,
While immortal love we sing.

Refrain:
We shall meet in the bright tomorrow,
God shall wipe every tearful eye;
No more sighing, and no more sorrow,
All will be glory, by and by.

2 By and by we shall cross the tide,
Cross the tide, cross the tide;
By and by we shall cross the tide
To the haven of the blest.
Thro’ his grace we’ll be glorified,
Glorified, glorified;
Thro’ his grace we’ll be glorified
In the peaceful land of rest. [Refrain]

3 Meeting there at the river’s brink,
River’s brink, river’s brink;
Meeting there at the river’s brink
We shall enter joys above.
May there be not a missing link,
Missing link, missing link;
May there be not a missing link
In the jeweled chain of love. [Refrain]

4 O the joy when we meet up there,
Meet up there, meet up there;
O the joy when we meet up there
On the happy Golden shore.
O the rapture we soon shall share,
Soon shall share, soon shall share;
O the rapture we soon shall share
With the loved ones gone before! [Refrain]
