Representative Text

1 We have heard the glad tidings of joy,
And our voices we lift upon high;
Here's a-dieu to each vain earthly toy--
We are all going home by-and-by.

Refrain:
Going home by-and-by, going home by-and-by,
When the shadows shall come nevermore;
Going home by-and-by, going home by-and-by,
To our rest on that beautiful shore.

2 Long and weary the journey has been;
In our path has been many a sigh;
From this dark land of sorrow and sin
We are all going home by-and-by. [Refrain]

3 With the lost ones of earth we shall meet
When the trumpet of God rends the sky;
Clad in garments of beauty complete,
They are all going home by-and-by. [Refrain]

4 Hasten, Saviour, thy coming we pray,
Bid thy saints upward mount to the sky;
Usher in glad eternity's day,
Come and gather us home by-and-by. [Refrain]
