In the Sweet Bye and Bye (Samuel F. Bennett and J. P. Webster) There's a land that is fairer than day, And by faith we can see it afar; For the Father waits over the way To prepare us a dwelling place there. cho: In the sweet (in the sweet) By and by (by and by) We shall meet on that beautiful shore; In the sweet (in the sweet) By and by (by and by) We shall meet on that beautiful shore. We shall sing on that beautiful shore The melodious songs of the blest, And our spirits shall sorrow no more Not a sigh for the blessing of rest. To our bountiful father above We will offer our tribute of praise; For the glorious gift of His love And the blessings that hallow our days. note: another case where the original has been eclipsed by the parody.
