Full Text

1 Do you often weary and discouraged grow
With the burdens you are called to bear?
Do you sometimes long deliverance to know
From the sorrows and the heartaches here?

Chorus:
By and by around the throne we'll sing
(By and by, yes, by and by,)
Endless praises to our Lord and King,
(By and by, yes, by and by,)
Who in mercy sought us,
And thro' grace has bro't us
To our Father's home on high.

2 Does the journey oft seem wearisome and long
Ere at last you reach the shining goal?
Do you sometimes long to join the blood-washed throng
In the blessed homeland of the soul? [Chorus]

3 Just a few more toiling days for you and me,
Till our life's work here on earth be done;
Crowded full of willing service let them be,
Till we hear the Master's blest "Well done." [Chorus]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
