1 We shall reach the sunny shore,
By and by;
We shall sorrow never more,
By and by;
We shall walk with Him in white,
In the land of heavenly light;
We shall dwell with Him forever,
By and by.

2 When the race of life is run,
By and by;
And the crown of glory won,
By and by;
O how sweet to find a rest,
With our Lord, among the blest;
We shall dwell with Him forever,
By and by.

3 When the storms of earth are past,
By and by;
We shall be at home at last,
By and by;
But the sweetest joy will be,
When the face of Christ we see;
We shall dwell with Him forever,
By and by.
