"In the Sweet By and By" as written by Philip E. Balsley, Jimmy Fortune, Don S. Reid, Harold Wilson Reid, Joseph P. Webster and S. Fillmore Bennett....
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

[Chorus:]
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blessed
And our spirit shall sorrow no more
Not a sign for the blessing of rest

[Chorus x 2]

In the sweet by and by
In the sweet by and by, oh
