1 Over the River of Jordan we’ll meet,
In the beautiful by-and-by;
Loved ones long gone on before we shall greet,
In the beautiful by-and-by.
Ties of affection are broken no more,
Life is a treasure sublime on the shore,
Angelic bands wait to welcome us o’er,
In the beautiful by-and-by.

2 Joy will illumine each step of our way,
In the beautiful by-and-by;
Darkness will melt in the brightness of day,
In the beautiful by-and-by.
Yes, far away in the city of gold.
Teeming with pleasures to mortals untold,
We shall the face of our Saviour behold,
In the beautiful by-and-by.

3 Gladly we’ll join the sweet strains of the blest,
In the beautiful by-and-by;
Gladly we’ll enter the heavenly rest,
In the beautiful by-and-by.
Far from the shadows that darken this land,
We shall be one of a glorified band,
Led by the Father’s own bountiful hand,
In the beautiful by-and-by.
