(under the name Alice Hawthorne) Septimus Winner, 1875

Home, by and by, when our duties are done,
Meeting again with the lov'd that are gone;
Joy for the heart when all trials are past,
Home, by and by, home in Heaven at last.
Chorus:
Home, by and by, when my journey is o'er,
Resting in peace on that beautiful shore;
Safe thro' the gates to my home, by and by;
Nearer to God in his mansions on high.
2. Home, by and by, oh, how welcome the thought,
Serving the Master, we ever have sought;
Singing his praise with a heart full of joy;
Knowing the peace that no sin can destroy.
Chorus:
