A Gospel Song a Day Keeps the Blues Away – In the Sweet Bye and Bye

Now here’s a little treasure you won’t find often: Loretta Lynn and Grandpa Jones singing “our hymn today”. Have you noticed that so many gospel songs are about the joys of heaven?! I can’t barely think of anything more wonderful to sing about!

In the Sweet Bye and Bye
Lyrics: Sanford E. Bennett
Music: Joseph 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.

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 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.
