By and by,
From Egypt’s yoke set free;
Hail the glorious jubilee,
And to Canaan we’ll return,
By and by.

And our sorrows have an end,
With our three score years and ten,
And vast glory crown the day
By and by.

Though our enemies are strong,
We’ll go on,
Though our hearts dissolve with fear,
Lo, Sinai’s God is near,
While the fiery pillar moves,
We’ll go on.
