Full Text

1 Soon we’ll lay our burdens down,
And take up a golden crown,
A better time is coming by and by;
Soon we’ll enter into rest,
With the ransomed and the blest,
A better time is coming by and by.

Refrain:
A better time is coming by and by,
A better time is coming by and by;
When this weary life is o’er,
And we reach the other shore,
A better time is coming by and by.

2 We have trials here below,
Where the turbid waters flow,
A better time is coming by and by;
Let us look beyond the gloom,
Where transplanted roses bloom,
A better time is coming by and by. [Refrain]

3 Soon, before our Father’s throne,
We will meet the loved ones gone,
A better time is coming by and by;
Let us press along the way,
To that glad triumphal day,
A better time is coming by and by. [Refrain]
