1 ‘Tis a blessed hope and it cheers my soul,
That I shall rest, sweetly rest, by and by.
When my work is done and my crown is won,
Then I shall rest, sweetly rest by and by.

Refrain:
By and by,
By and by,
I shall rest, sweetly rest, by and by,
‘Tis a precious hope, ‘tis a blessed hope,
That I shall rest, sweetly rest by and by.

2 ‘Tis a blessed hope which my Saviour gives,
That I shall rest, sweetly rest, by and by.
I shall see Him there in His mansion fair,
When I shall rest, sweetly rest by and by. [Refrain]

3 With a steadfast faith I shall labor on,
That I may rest, sweetly rest, by and by.
O what joy ‘twill be the redeemed to see,
When I shall rest, sweetly rest by and by. [Refrain]
