Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.169

First Line: A better day is coming,

A better day is coming,
A morning promised long,
When girded Right, with holy Might,
Will overthrow the Wrong;
When God the Lord will listen
To every plaintive sigh,
And stretch His hand o'er every land,
With justice by and by.

Coming by and by, coming by and by !
The better day is coming, the morning draweth nigh
Coming by and by, coming by and by I
The welcome dawn will hasten on, 'tis coming
by and by.

2 The boast of haughty Error
No more will fill the air,
But Age and Youth will love the Truth,
And spread it everywhere;
No more from Want and Sorrow
Will come the hopeless cry;
For strife will cease, and perfect Peace
Will flourish by and by.

3 Oh, for that holy dawning
We watch, and wait, and pray,
Till o'er the height the morning light
Shall drive the gloom away;
And when the heavenly glory
Shall flood the earth and sky,
We'll bless the Lord for all His word,
And praise Him by and by.
