1 Soon beyond the swelling flood,
Washed in Jesus’ precious blood,
We’ll be gathered home with Jesus by and by.
In that glorious summer land,
Soon we’ll join the angel band,
We’ll be gathered home with Jesus by and by.

Refrain:
By and by, by and by,
We’ll be gathered home with Jesus by and by.
Home with Jesus by and by,
In that land beyond the sky.
We’ll be gathered home with Jesus by and by.

2 Oh, be ready, brother dear,
For the Lord will soon appear;
We’ll be gathered home with Jesus by and by.
He will give to us sweet rest,
We’ll be numbered with the blest,
We’ll be gathered home with Jesus by and by. [Refrain]

3 Like the stars we soon shall shine,
Won’t that be a happy time?
We’ll be gathered home with Jesus by and by.
Won’t the heav’nly arches ring,
When we all unite to sing,
We’ll be gathered home with Jesus by and by. [Refrain]
