Representative Text

1 O troubled heart bow’d down with bitter pain,
Think not thy tears of grief shall fall in vain;
The sun of hope shall shine for thee again,
Some glad, sweet day, some glad, sweet day.

Refrain:
Some glad, sweet day, when clouds of grief are rifted,
Some glad, sweet day thy heart shall sing for jpy;
Some glad, sweet day thy burden shall be lifted,
Some glad, sweet day, some glad, sweet day.

2 Think no the Father will His own forsake,
All that He sends without a murmur take;
When night is past the golden dawn will break,
Some glad, sweet day, some glad, sweet day. [Refrain]

3 God only sends His very best to thee,
His eyes behold what thine may fail to see;
His hidden plans to thee unveiled shall be
Some glad, sweet day, some glad, sweet day. [Refrain]
