Though Were Tenting Awhile


Tho’ we’re tenting awhile in the valley of time,
We shall stand on the heights by and by;
To our sight will unfold scenes of beauty sublime,
We shall stand on the heights by and by.

Chorus:
We shall stand on the heights, on those glorious heights
We by faith in the distance descry;
Tho’ the journey seem long, with a shout and a song,
We shall stand on the heights by and by.

Looking far o’er the plains of the fair Beulah land,
We shall stand on the heights by and by,
Viewing palaces built by our kind Father’s hand,
We shall stand on the heights by and by. [Chorus]

Gazing back o’er the way by our weary feet pressed,
We shall stand on the heights by and by,
Seeing clearly the path for us chosen was best,
We shall stand on the heights by and by. [Chorus]

O my comrades, press on, filled with courage and cheer,
We shall stand on the heights by and by;
“Welcome home to eternity’s rest,” we shall hear,
When we stand on the heights by and by. [Chorus]
