God's Tomorrow

Representative Text

1 God’s tomorrow is a day of gladness,
And its joys shall never fade;
No more weeping, no more sense of sadness,
No more foes to make afraid.

God’s tomorrow, God’s tomorrow,
Ev’ry cloud will pass away
At the dawning of that day;
God’s tomorrow,
No more sorrow,
For I know that God’s tomorrow
Will be better than today!

2 God’s tomorrow is a day of greeting:
We shall see the Savior’s face;
And our longing hearts await the meeting
In that holy, happy place. [Refrain]

3 God’s tomorrow is a day of glory:
We shall wear the crown of life;
Sing thro’ countless years love’s old, old story,
Free forever from all strife. [Refrain]
