48. Over Jordan We Shall Meet

Over Jordan we shall meet,
By and by, by and by,
In a fellowship so sweet,
By and by;
We shall gather on the shore,
With our kindred gone before,
And the Savior's name adore,
By and by.

By and by, by and by,
Over Jordan we shall gather by and by,
By and by, by and by,
Then we’ll shout and sing forever, by and by.

All our sorrows shall be past,
By and by, by and by;
We shall reach our home at last,
By and by;
With the ransomed we shall stand
There, a holy, happy band,
Crowned with glory in that land,
By and by.

We shall join the heav’nly choir,
By and by, by and by;
We shall strike the golden lyre,
By and by;
In our home so bright and fair
Where the happy angels are,
We shall praise forever there,
By and by.

There we'll join the ransomed throng,
By and by, by and by,
Chanting love's redeeming song,
By and by;
There we'll meet before the throne,
There we'll lay our trophies down,
And receive a shining crown,
By and by.
