Some Sweet Day, By and By

Verse 1:
We shall reach the summerland,
Some sweet day, by and by;
We shall press the golden strand,
Some sweet day, by and by;
Oh, the loved ones watching there,
By the tree of life so fair,
Till we come their joy to share,
Some sweet day, by and by.

Refrain:
By and by, Some sweet day,
We shall meet ou lov’d ones gone,
Some sweet day, by and by.

Verse 2:
At the crystal river’s brink,
Some sweet day, by and by;
We shall find each broken link,
Some sweet day, by and by;
Then the star that fading here,
Left our hearts and homes so drear,
We shall see more bright and clear,
Some sweet day, by and by.

Verse 3:
Oh, these parting scenes will end,
Some sweet day, by and by;
We shall gather friend with friend,
Some sweet day, by and by;
There before our Father’s throne,
When the mists and clouds have flown,
We shall know as we are known,
Some sweet day, by and by.

F.J. Crosby/W.H. Doane
