One by One

Representative Text

1 One by one the years are flying,
Leaving still the numberless;
One by one the dear ones dying,
Pass from this sad world to rest.

Refrain:
One by one, when life is ended,
One by one we'll all go home!
There we'll sing with voices blended,
"Christ has saved us one by one!"

2 One by one our fond dreams fading,
Pass forever from our sight;
One by one the clouds o'ershad'wing,
Hide from us our promised light. [Refrain]

3 One by one the clouds will vanish,
Leaving our horizons clear;
May the Lord each terror banish,
As the stream of death draws near! [Refrain]
