Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

196. One Day

1 One day when heaven was filled with his praises,
one day when sin was as black as could be,
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin,
dwelt among us, my example is he!

Living, he loved me; dying, he saved me;
buried, he carried my sins far away;
rising, he justified freely forever:
one day he’s coming—-O glorious day!

2 One day they led him up Calvary’s mountain,
one day they nailed him to die on the tree;
suffering anguish, despised and rejected,
bearing our sins, my Redeemer is he! (Refrain)

3 One day they left him alone in the garden,
one day he rested, from suffering free;
angels came down o’er his tomb to keep vigil;
hope of the hopeless, my Savior is he! (Refrain)

4 One day the grave could conceal him no longer,
one day the stone rolled away from the door;
then he arose, over death he had conquered,
now is ascended, my Lord evermore! (Refrain)

5 One day the trumpet will sound for his coming,
one day the skies with his glories will shine;
wonderful day, my belovèd ones bringing;
glorious Savior, this Jesus is mine! (Refrain)
