1 O how sweet ’twill be to meet the Lord,
When He comes in glory, by and by;
What a song of praise will be outpoured,
When He comes in glory, by and by.

Refrain:
How sweet! How sweet!
When He comes in the sky!
What joy! What joy!
When He comes in glory, by and by.

2 We will have our robes all white as snow,
When He comes in glory, by and by;
O be ready with the Lord to go,
When He comes in glory, by and by. [Refrain]

3 I am longing for that happy day,
When He comes in glory, by and by;
For with Him I hope to soar away,
When He comes in glory, by and by. [Refrain]
