726. Saved by Grace

1 Some day the silver cord will break,
And I no more as now shall sing;
But oh, the joy when I shall wake
Within the palace of the King!

Refrain:
And I shall see him face to face,
And tell the story - Saved by grace;
And I shall see him face to face,
And tell the story - Saved by grace.

2 Some day my earthly house will fall,
I cannot tell how soon 'twill be;
But this I know - my All in All
Has now a place in heav'n for me. [Refrain]

3 Some day, when fades the golden sun
Beneath the rosy-tinted west,
My blessed Lord will say, "Well done!"
And I shall enter into rest. [Refrain]

4. Some day: till then I'll watch and wait,
My lamp all trimmed and burning bright,
That when my Saviour opes the gate,
My soul to him may take its flight. [Refrain]

Amen.
