Representative Text

1 Over Jordan we shall meet,
By and by, by and by,
In a fellowship so sweet,
By and by, by and by;
We shall gather on the shore,
With our kindred gone before,
And the Savior's name adore,
By and by, by and by.

2 All our sorrows shall be past,
By and by, by and by;
We shall reach our home at last,
By and by, by and by;
With the ransomed we shall stand
There, a holy, happy band,
Crowned with glory in that land,
By and by, by and by.

3 There we'll join the ransomed throng,
By and by, by and by,
Chanting love's redeeming song,
By and by, by and by;
There we'll meet before the throne,
There we'll lay our trophies down,
And receive a shining crown,
By and by, by and by.
