He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces.@Isaiah 25:8

There’s a city, bright and glorious,
Far beyond the azure sky,
Where with Christ we’ll dwell victorious,
In the happy by and by.

Refrain

Peace we’ll share beyond all measure,
Where no tears can dim the eye;
Freedom, life, and endless pleasure,
In the happy by and by.

Earthly ties and hopes are blighted
By the summons from on high,
But we shall be reunited
In the happy by and by.

Refrain

Sin and death can enter never,
Not a sorrow or a sigh;
Joy shall be our portion ever
In the happy by and by.

Refrain

Endless praises there are ringing
Christ the Lord to glorify,
And we’ll join the angels singing
In the happy by and by.
