Refrain:
Keep a-inching along,
Keep a-inching along.
Jesus will come by-and by,
Keep a-inghing along,
like a poor inch worm.
Jesus will come by-and-by.

1 It was inch by inch that I sought the lord,
Jesus will come by-and-by.
It was inch by inch that He saved my soul,
Jesus will come by-and by.

2 We'll inch and inch, and inch along,
Jesus will come by-and by;
And inch by inch till we get home,
Jesus will come by-and by.

3 O trials and troubles on the way,
Jesus will come by-and by;
But we must watch as well as pray,
Jesus will come by-and by.
