Full Text

1 I shall see my Savior’s face,
When I reach that happy place
Just beyond the silent river by and by;
Oh, how happy I will be,
When His glory I shall see,
And I’ll dwell with Him forever, by and by.

I shall see Him face to face,
I shall know His boundless grace,
When I reach the Holy City by and by;
All my hopes I’ll realize,
In that home beyond the skies,
When I see Him in His beauty by and by.

2 I shall see the nail-pierc’d hand,
When I reach the golden strand,
‘Twill extend to me a welcome by and by;
I shall see the wounded side,
From which flow’d the crimson tide,
And I’ll praise Him for redemption, by and by. [Refrain]

3 I shall see my mother’s face,
For she too was sav’d by grace,
And with Jesus she will meet me by and by;
With our lov’d ones we will be,
There with Christ eternally,
No more parting at the river by and by. [Refrain]
