Representative Text

1 I shall see my Saviour’s face, sometime, sometime;
I shall praise Him for His grace, sometime, sometime;
Long and loud my praise shall roll,
As His mercies I extol,
In that homeland of the soul, sometime, sometime.

2 I shall reap what now I sow, sometime, sometime;
By the crystal river’s flow, sometime, sometime;
Since I love my Saviour here,
There is naught for me to fear,
For I shall with Him appear, sometime, sometime.

3 ‘Neath the grassy mound I’ll sleep, sometime, sometime;
Friends above my grave may weep, sometime, sometime;
But with Jesus I shall rise,
Gain my everlasting prize,
Reign with Him beyond the skies, sometime, sometime.

4 I shall join my long lost friends, sometime, sometime;
In that life that never ends, sometime, sometime;
In that blest eternal state,
Where for me they watch and wait,
I shall meet them at the gate, sometime, sometime.

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J.
