1374. When we lay our burdens down

1 When we lay our burdens down,
Sometime, sometime;
When we take the harp and crown
In that city of renown,
We shall sing, sometime,
Sometime, sometime.

Refrain:
We shall sing, sometime,
We shall sing, sometime,
Where the heart is never sad,
Where the dwellers all are glad;
In that happy, Eden clime,
We shall meet, sometime.

2 We shall join the angel throng
Sometime, sometime;
We shall raise a joyful song
Through the endless ages long,
We shall sing, sometime,
Sometime, sometime. [Refrain]

3 We shall see the city fair,
Sometime, sometime;
We shall dwell forever there,
Free from sorrow, sin and care,
In the glad sometime,
Sometime, sometime. [Refrain]

4 We shall meet to part no more,
Sometime, sometime;
On that blest immortal shore,
Where the reign of death is o'er,
We shall meet, sometime,
Sometime, sometime. [Refrain]

5 In that bright, eternal day,
Sometime, sometime;
Tears shall all be wiped away,
And we nevermore shall say
"We shall sing, sometime,"
Sometime, sometime. [Refrain]
