1 In the palace of my King,
By and by,
My Redeemer’s praise I’ll sing,
By and by.
For my Father in his word,
Says I shall be like the Lord,
Endlessly he will afford,
By and by.

Refrain:
By and by,
By and by,
By and by,
By and by,
In the palace of my King,
My Redeemer’s praise I’ll sing,
In the palace of my King,
By and by.

2 He will give to me a crown,
By and by,
When I see him on his throne,
By and by.
Stars upon my crown will shine,
For the souls which led by mine,
Shall be saved through love divine,
By and by. [Refrain]

3 I shall wear a spotless robe,
By and by,
Given by my living Lord,
By and by.
Jesus’ blood has washed it white,
Oh, how grand will be the sight,
When I greet the saints in light,
By and by. [Refrain]

4 What a meeting that will be,
By and by,
When my Savior I shall see,
By and by.
Oh, the bliss to them belong,
To the star-crowned, white-robed throng,
In that summer land of song,
By and by. [Refrain]

James Edward Hawes was born in Vermillion County, IL, near Danville, on Aug. 18, 1862. While growing up, he was nicknamed “the preacher” because of his exceptional moral life. Evidently he became a well-known song leader among churches of Christ and Christian Churches in the latter part of the nineteenth century and into the early twentieth century, as well as a preacher. Hawes formed an evangelistic team about 1885, after the example of Dwight L. Moody and Ira D. Sankey, with Jacob V. Updike (1850-1907). They met with great success before disbanding to become located ministers. According to The Christian Evangelist of Dec. 16, 1901, Hawes was located as minister with the Church of Christ in Greenwich, OH. Also, Hawes edited a hymnbook… Go to person page >
