Representative Text

1 There’s a city, bright and glorious,
Far beyond the azure sky,
Where with Christ we’ll dwell victorious,
In the happy by and by.

Refrain:
Peace we’ll share beyond all measure,
Where no tears can dim the eye;
Freedom, life, and endless pleasure,
In the happy by and by.

2 Earthly ties and hopes are blighted
By the summons from on high,
But we shall be reunited
In the happy by and by. [Refrain]

3 Sin and death can enter never,
Not a sorrow or a sigh;
Joy shall be our portion ever
In the happy by and by. [Refrain]

4 Endless praises there are ringing
Christ the Lord to glorify,
And we’ll join the angels singing
In the happy by and by. [Refrain]
