Representative Text

1 I shall lay the cross aside,
Some day, some glad day;
Safely pass to Canaan’s side,
Some day, some glad day;
If I live a life of prayer,
And the cross for Jesus bear,
I a glorious crown shall wear,
Some day, some glad day.

2 I the sinners’ friend shall see,
Some day, some glad day;
See the wounds once made for me,
Some day, some glad day;
I shall press close to His side,
Who for me was crucified,
And shall then be satisfied,
Some day, some glad day.

3 I shall meet the friends of yore,
Some day, some glad day;
And with them the Lamb adore,
Some day, some glad day;
There at Jesus’ sacred feet
Saints of every clime I’ll meet,
Hold with them communion sweet,
Some day, some glad day.

4 I shall lean on Jesus’ breast,
Some day, some glad day;
Find a sweet, a perfect rest,
Some day, some glad day;
On that bright eternal shore
All our sorrows will be o’er;
We shall meet to part no more.
Some day, some glad day.
