DigiTrad: SWEET BY AND BY

SWEET BY AND BY
(S.Fillmore Bennett and J.P.Webster)

G C G
There's a land that is fairer than day,
D7
And by faith we can see it afar;
G C G
For the Father waits over the way,
D7 G
To prepare us a dwelling place there.


G D
cho: In the sweet by and by,
D7 G
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
G7 C
In the sweet by and by,
G D7 G
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 the tribute of praise,
For the glorious gift of His love
And the blessings that hallow our days.

THis is the one that Joe Hill parodied in Preacher and the Slave
