quiet now, can you hear
singing soft and clear
voices from on high
that ring like silver

they are calling you home
never more to roam
in the sweet by and by
across the river

lift your eyes, can you see
a grove of evergreen
’neath the bluest sky
so bright it shimmers

and in fields of gold
see the young and old
you will greet by and by
across the river

come rest your weary head
your work is at an end
let the water wash away
any pain you feel today

one more breath to take
one more journey to make
loose your boat from its moor
let it carry you ashore

take my hand, can you know
what I could never show
love you leave behind
will ever linger

what was broken will mend
no farewells my friend
we will meet by and by
across the river

we will meet by and by
across the river
