What Will It Matter?

 

What will it matter by and by,
What will it matter by and by,
Whether my crosses were heavy or light,
Whether my pathway was clouded or bright,
When I shall walk with the ransomed in white,
Safe in that beautiful land?

What will it matter by and by,
What will it matter by and by,
Whether my trials were many or few,
Whether my friends were unfaithful or true,
When my Redeemer in glory I view,
Safe in that beautiful land?

What will it matter by and by,
What will it matter by and by,
Whether the waters were bitter or sweet,
Murmuring gently or sad at my feet,
When the departed with rapture I meet,
Safe in that beautiful land?

What will it matter by and by,
What will it matter by and by,
Whether I pass with the morning away,
Whether at noontide or closing of day,
When in the mountain of Zion I stray,
Safe in that beautiful land?

Proverbs 29:25  The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso
putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

Revelation 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things;
and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it
any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination,
or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
