1 When I leave this land of sorrow
And go over there to rest,
Many hearts will be found watching,
And the ones I love the best;
And the joys will be continued
In that heav’nly place so fair,
When I reach the gates of glory, by and by.

Refrain:
When I reach the gates of glory, by and by,
When I reach the gates of glory, by and by.
And the joys will be continued
In that heav’nly place so fair,
When I reach the gates of glory, by and by.

2 In that place where come no changes,
Our beloved we shall meet,
Clad in garments pure and spotless,
Sitting at the Saviour’s feet;
There no sorrow or affliction,
Pain nor death can ever come,
When I reach the gates of glory, by and by. [Refrain]

3 Let us all look up to heaven,
And be earnest in the way,
Cast our care upon the Saviour,
He will guide us day by day;
There will be no separation
In that heav’nly place so fair,–
When we reach the gates of glory, by and by. [Refrain]
