Lyrics

By and by, I'm going to see the King
By and by, I'm going to see the King
By and by, I'm going to see the King
Lord, I don't mind dyin' 'cause I'm a child of God

Old mother, she called her daughter to her dying bed
She placed her hand upon her daughter's head
Grasped her tightly in her arms
Saying, "I will not be with you very long"

"Oh daughter, oh God is soon gonna call me home
But you must remember, when I'm dead and gone
I must leave you in this old world alone
But-a you know that God will guide you safely on"

Oh, by and by, I'm going to see the King
By and by, I'm going to see the King
By and by, I'm going to see the King
Lord, I don't mind dyin' 'cause I'm a child of God

"Oh daughter, will you try to seek the safest way?
For night and day, for you I've always prayed
Now you know, you will have a right to grieve
For you knew, some old day, that I must leave"

Oh, by and by, I'm going to see the King
By and by, I'm going to see the King
By and by, I'm going to see the King
Lord, I don't mind dyin' 'cause I'm a child of God

"Oh daughter, you may do things that you can consider no harm
But God in Heaven do know that you are wrong
You better let dances, card parties, all go by
So that-a you can be able to gain your home on high"

Oh, daughter, she was standing, with tears rolling down her cheeks
She's trembling in her voice, whenever she did speak
Saying, "No more dancin', Mother, and no more playin' cards
From this day on, I shall serve my God"

Oh, by and by, I'm going to see the King
By and by, I'm going to see the King
By and by, I'm going to see the King
Lord, I don't mind dyin' 'cause I'm a child of God
