Lyrics

God shall wipe all tears away,
By and by, by and by;
When earth’s night has passed away
By and by, by and by;
In that land that knows no night,
But where Jesus is the light,
We shall walk in robes of white,
By and by, by and by.

God shall wipe all tears away,
By and by, by and by;
In that resurrection day,
By and by, by and by.
In that land so bright and fair,
With our loved ones we shall share
All the glories over there,
By and by, by and by.

God shall wipe all tears away,
By and by, by and by;
All earth’s sorrows will repay,
By and by, by and by.
No more partings, no more tears,
No more sighing, no more fears,
Spend with Christ the endless years,
By and by, by and by.

God shall wipe all tears away,
By and by, by and by;
We shall sing His praise for aye,
By and by, by and by.
We shall never know a care,
Nor a grief nor burden bear,
Always happy over there,
By and by, by and by.
