[Verse 1]
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

[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.

[Verse 2]
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.

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
To our bountiful Father above,
We will offer the tribute of praise,
For the glorious gift of his love
And the blessing that hallowed our days

[Chorus]
