  • There's a land that is fairer than day
    And by faith we can see it afar
    For the father waits over the way
    To prepare us a dwelling place there

    In the sweet by and by
    We shall meet on that beautiful shore
    In the sweet by and by
    We shall meet on that beautiful shore

    We shall sing on that beautiful shore
    The melodious songs of the blest
    And our spirits shall sorrow no more
    Not a sigh for the blessing of rest

    In the sweet by and by
    We shall meet on that beautiful shore
    In the sweet by and by
    We shall meet on that beautiful shore

    To our bountiful father above
    We will offer our tribute of praise
    For the glorious gift of his love
    And the blessings that hallow our days

    In the sweet by and by
    We shall meet on that beautiful shore
    In the sweet by and by
    we shall meet on that beautiful shore Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
