Lyrics

Verse 1
There's a land that is fairer than day,
And by faith we can see it afar,
For the Savior waits over the way
To prepare us a dwelling place there.

Verse 2
We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blessed;
And our spirits shall sorrow no more,
Not a sigh for the blessing of rest.

Verse 3
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.

Chorus
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.

Hymn: 9.9.9.9. with chorus, Sanford F. Bennett (1867)
Tune: Joseph P. Webster (1867)
