Representative Text

1 Oh! what a great day in Zion ‘twill be—
When over the river we safely have cross’d;
We’ll meet our dear friends, our lov’d ones we’ll see,
Unknown to the world that is lost.

Chorus:
What a great day in Zion ‘twill be—
When we have cross’d o’er Jordan’s swift tide,
Our voices will blend with angels in glee,
While hov’ring close by His dear side.

2 Oh! what a great day in Zion ‘twill be—
When souls shall be happy as never before;
From heartaches and sorrow we shall be free,
When safely we land on yon shore. [Chorus]

3 Oh! what a great day in Zion ‘twill be—
‘Mid sounding of trumpets, with harp in our hand;
With angels of light, the glories we’ll see—
Of Heaven, the Paradise Land. [Chorus]
