Words and Music By J. E. Rankin D. D.
Arr. By J. W. Bischoff

1. There's a better time a-coming,
By and by, by and by;
You can catch the glory breaking
In the sky, in the sky.
Kind the words which shall be spoken;
Loving hearts no more be broken;
And the Cross shall be the token,
Of the better time a-coming.

CHORUS:
There's a better time coming
By and by, By and by,
There's a better time coming
By and by, By and by,
There's a better time coming
By and by, By and by
And you can help it on.

2. There's a better time a-coming,
By and by, by and by;
You can catch the glory breaking
In the sky, in the sky.
Men no more ill tempt each other;
Sinful passions they will smother;
Brother, then, be true to brother,
In the better time a-coming.

CHORUS.

3. There's a better time a-coming,
By and by, by and by;
You can catch the glory breaking
In the sky, in the sky.
All men's wrongs, then, love shall right them,
All men's battles, love shall fight them;
All men's foes, we'll win despite them,
In the better time a-coming.

CHORUS.

4. There's a better time a-coming,
By and by, by and by;
You can catch the glory breaking
In the sky, in the sky.
We'll be true, we here declare it!
We'll be loyal! now we swear it!
What is needful, do or dare it,
For the better time a-coming.

CHORUS.

5. There's a better time a-coming,
By and by, by and by;
You can catch the glory breaking
In the sky, in the sky.
With the Lord, to go before us,
With his banner floating o'er us.
Loud we shout, we shout and chorus,
Of the better time a coming.

CHORUS.
