Bird Youmans – Sweet By and By

This is an old hymnal song “Sweet By and By” by Bird Youmans. Requested by an employee of the Morristown Chick-fil-A. While, I was there thinking of songs to share for the 30 days, I asked one and this is the song they requested.  Click to watch in YouTube

As promised, I said I would post a Christian Music Video each day during the 30 Day Christian Music Challenge to help introduce you to a new band, artist or song. This is day 15 of 30.

These are the lyrics of the traditional hymn for this song

Verse 1

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.

Refrain of the song

In the sweet by and by,
we shall meet on that beautiful shore;
[The above two lines are repeated]

Verse 2

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. [Refrain]

Verse 3

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. [Refrain]
