1 The bells of hope ring in my soul,
And, oh, how sweet their chime!
Their song keeps ringing day by day
Thro’ busy working time.
Tho’ weary oft with toil and care,
Tho’ oft for rest I sigh,
Hope’s bells my fainting spirit cheer,
He’s coming by and by.

Refrain:
He’s coming by and by,
He’s coming by and by,
The bells of hope ring in my soul,
He’s coming by and by.

2 It may be at the eventide,
My Lord will come for me,
Or that the silent midnight hour
His chosen time will be.
He gently bids me watch and wait;
When unto Him I cry,
And tunes my heart to hope’s refrain,
He’s coming by and by. [Refrain]

3 So, watching, praying , toiling on,
Still cheered by hope’s sweet bells,
I journey to the Beulah land
Where joy forever dwells.
I catch a glimpse of Canaan’s shore,
My hope beyond the sky,
All glory to His precious name!
He’s coming by and by. [Refrain]
