Lyrics: T. Phillips Thompson.
Tune: “The Sweet By-and-By.”


There’s a glorious future in store
When the toil-worn shall rise from the dust,
Then the poor shall be trampled no more
And mankind to each other be just.

In the sweet by and by,
When the spirit of justice shall reign (By and by.)
In the sweet by and by,
When the spirit of justice shall reign.

Then the world with new life shall be blessed,
Oppression shall banish away,
None shall toil at another’s behest
In the light of that glorious day.

In the sweet by and by,
When the spirit of justice shall reign (By and by.)
In the sweet by and by,
When the spirit of justice shall reign.

In this weltering chaos of night,
Though the struggle be bitter and long,
Let us still turn our eyes to the light
And gain strength for the battle with wrong.

In the sweet by and by,
When the spirit of justice shall reign (By and by.)
In the sweet by and by,
When the spirit of justice shall reign.

In the fullness of time it will come
And our labors the way will prepare,
Though our hearts may be cold in the tomb
Yet our spirits that rapture will share.

In the sweet by and by,
When the spirit of justice shall reign (By and by.)
In the sweet by and by,
When the spirit of justice shall reign.
