Representative Text

1 Patiently we toil along
We will gather by and by,
In the summer land of song,
In the blessed home on high.

By and by, yes, by and by
Gain the home for which we long,
Dwell with Jesus by and by,
In the summer land of song.

2 With the ransom’d host above
Looking on our Savior’s face,
Sing the story of His love,
Sing the riches of His grace. [Refrain]

3 Hallelujah! by and by,
Near our Lord in white array,
We shall find a cloudless sky,
With the tear-drops wiped away. [Refrain]
