Representative Text

1 One of God’s days ev’ry dark cloud,
Hiding the sunlight of heavenly grace,
He will remove,
And face to face, we shall see Jesus
One of God’s days.

One of God’s days, beautiful days,
We shall in glory sing His praise;
Fightings all done,
Victories won,
We shall see Jesus,
One of God’s days.

2 One of God’s days, those who are now
Faithful to Jesus in life’s constant maze,
Soon shall see light;
Then will they know all of life’s meaning
One of God’s days. [Refrain]

3 One of God’s days loved ones so dear,
Who in the glory are singing His praise,
Lost for awhile,
We shall soon meet, with all the ransomed,
One of God’s days. [Refrain]
