Representative Text

1 We shall cross the rolling tide
By and by, by and by,
And our armor lay aside,
By and by, by and by.
We shall reach the other shore,
And with millions gone before,
We shall rest forevermore,
By and by, by and by.

2 There are crowns that we shall win
By and by, by and by,
When our sheaves are gathered in,
By and by, by and by.
O, the wonder and surprise
That will greet our waking eyes,
When to glory we shall rise,
By and by, by and by.

3 There our dear ones we shall meet,
By and by, by and by,
At a loving Saviour’s feet,
By and by, by and by.
And the chains of friendship true,
Will be twined for us anew,
When each other’s face we view,
By and by, by and by.
