Mawmaw’s Song (In The Sweet By And By)

Song Lyrics

VERSE 1

Seven years old upon my knees
On the third row pew, trying to see
My grandmamma sing In the Sweet By and By
It wasn’t the sweetest soundin’ thing
But there’s somethin’ about when grandmamma sang
That moved your feet, stirred something up inside

To see her grin from ear to ear
One thing for sure was very clear
This wasn’t just a song
It was her life

CHORUS

In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

VERSE 2

Now times have changed to say the least
My grandmamma’s voice, a memory
Just like the old song said, she’s on that shore
And she’s looking down on me
I hope she’s proud of what she sees
Cause thanks to her I’m walkin’ with the Lord

Oh to hear her once again
Wrap herself around that hymn
Lord, If I could just go back once more

CHORUS 2

In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

BRIDGE

There’s a land that is fairer than day
By faith we can see it afar
For the Father waits over the way
To prepare us a dwelling place there

Oh I can hear her singing

CHORUS

In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
