During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

1 We shall all clasp hands in glory
By and by;
We shall tell redemption’s story
By and by;
When the voyage of life is past
We shall reach the port at last,
And our anchor safely cast
By and by.

Refrain
By and by, (By and by,) by and by, (By and by,)
We shall all clasp hands in glory
By and by; (By and by;)
We shall see our Savior’s face,
And adore His wondrous grace,
We shall feel His fond embrace
By and by.

2 We shall wake no more to sorrow
By and by;
In the smile of endless morrow
By and by;
Where our faith is lost in sight,
Where the Savior is the light,
We shall walk with Him in white
By and by. [Refrain]

3 We shall cross the silent river
By and by;
We shall rest and dwell togther
By and by;
Palms of victory we shall bear
In that cloudless region fair,
And we’ll know each other there
By and by. [Refrain]

4 We shall join the angel chorus
By and by;
With the dear ones gone before us
By and by;
In that realm of perfect day,
Where the silver fountains play,
God will wipe all tears away
By and by. [Refrain]
