We Shall Be At Home With Jesus


We shall be at home with Jesus,
By and by, by and by;
He’ll from sin and pain release us,
By and by, by and by;
When in us his work’s perfected,
Which by sin we once rejected,
We shall be by him accepted,
By and by, by and by.

We shall know in whom we’ve trusted,
By and by, by and by;
Ev’ry wrong shall be adjusted,
By and by, by and by;
Sweet will be the day of resting,
Happy day! so full of blessing,
To the grace of God attesting,
By and by, by and by.

When fulfilled our expectation,
By and by, by and by;
We shall fill some humble station,
By and by, by and by;
Thro’ the Savior’s intercession,
After full and free confession,
We shall gain a rich possession,
By and by, by and by.
