1 In that land of joy and song,
‘Mid that joyous blood-washed throng,
I’ll be there, some happy day I’ll be there!
Vict’ry won by Jesus’ grave;
Evermore to sing his praise;
Praise his name, some happy day I’ll be there!

Chorus:
I’ll be there some happy day,
I’ll be there some happy day!
In that land of song and gladness, I’ll be there!
Through earth’s trials, pain and woe,
Though my path may lead below,
Praise his name, some happy day I’ll be there!

2 Saved from ev’ry taint of sin,
Pure without and pure within,
I’ll be there, some happy day I’ll be there!
Nobler than my present thought,
Stronger for each battle fought;
Praise his name, some happy day I’ll be there! [Chorus]

3 With the loved, redeemed and blest,
With the saints, once sore oppressed,
I’ll be there, some happy day I’ll be there!
IN companionship so sweet,
‘Mid love’s raptures, pure, complete,
Praise his name, some happy day I’ll be there! [Chorus]

4 With the throng before the throne
Praising him, the Three in One,
I’ll be there, some happy day I’ll be there!
Leaving all that’s gone before,
Satisfied, to love, adore;
Praise his name, some happy day I’ll be there! [Chorus]
