"Coming By and By" (karaoke)

"Coming By and By" (sheet music)


A better day is coming,

A morning promised long,

When girded right with holy might

We'll overthrow the wrong,

When man shall rise and take his rights,

Not vainly plead and sigh,

And win the cause of righteous laws

And justice by and by.

 

Coming by and by,

Coming by and by!

The better day is coming;

The morning draweth nigh.

Coming by and by,

Coming by and by!

The welcome dawn shall hasten on;

'Tis coming by and by!

 

To grind the faces of the poor,

The rich no more shall dare,

For age and youth shall love the truth

And spread it everywhere;

No more from want and sorrow

Will come the hopeless cry;

And strife will cease and perfect peace

Will flourish by and by.

 

Coming by and by,

Coming by and by!

The better day is coming;

The morning draweth nigh.

Coming by and by,

Coming by and by!

The welcome dawn shall hasten on;

'Tis coming by and by!

 

O, for that welcome dawning,

When happiness and peace

Shall bless the land from East to West

And suffering shall cease;

This glor'ous consummation

The mourner's tears shall dry;

Then every voice will loud rejoice;

It's coming by and by.

 

Coming by and by,

Coming by and by!

The better day is coming;

The morning draweth nigh.

Coming by and by,

Coming by and by!

The welcome dawn shall hasten on;

'Tis coming by and by!
