1. I'd like to stay here longer than man's allotted days
And watch the fleeting changes of life's uneven ways,
But if my Savior calls me to that sweet home on high,
I'll live with Him forever in glory by and by.
O yes, I'll live in glory by and by,
I'll tell and sing love's story there on high,
There with my dear Redeemer no more to die,
O yes, I'll live in glory by and by.
2. I want to be of service along this pilgrim way
And lead the lost to Jesus as fervently I pray;
As day by day I travel I'll keep Him ever nigh,
And live with Him forever in glory by and by.
3. The end I know is nearing, by faith I look away
To yonder home supernal, the land of endless day,
I'll cling to Him forever, and look beyond the sky,
And spend the endless ages in glory by and by.
