Theres A City Bright And Glorious


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. [Refrain]
