In the Sweet By and By

Representative Text

1 There's a land that is fairer than day,
and by faith we can see it afar;
for the Father waits over the way
to prepare us a dwelling place there.

Refrain:
In the sweet by and by,
we shall meet on that beautiful shore.
In the sweet by and by,
we shall meet on that beautiful shore.

2 We shall sing on that beautiful shore
the melodious songs of the blest;
and our spirits shall sorrow no more,
not a sigh for the blessing of rest. [Refrain]

3 To our bountiful Father above
we will offer our tribute of praise,
for the glorious gift of his love
and the blessings that hallow our days. [Refrain]
