11897. When The Shadows Flee Away

1 Some day I shall hear God’s call of love
Calling to the land of endless day;
I shall then be with my Lord above.
Some day! Some day!
When the shadows flee away.

Refrain:
Some day when the shadows flee away,
Sorrow shall be o’er
Care be known no more;
Some day when the shadows flee away,
Some day! Some day!
When the shadows flee away.

2 Soon that dawn eternal shall appear,
When shall come the end of life’s dark way;
I shall be with loved ones I hold dear.
Some day! Some day!
When the shadows flee away. [Refrain[

3 Some day toil and care of life shall cease,
In that land my Lord shall have full sway;
Naught can mar its wondrous joy and peace.
Some day! Some day!
When the shadows flee away. [Refrain]

4 Tears and sighs forever overpast,
In that land illumined by His ray;
Cloud of sin can never overcast.
Some day! Some day!
When the shadows flee away. [Refrain]
